Designation of the Opening Day of the Christmas Seal 
Sale by the Tuberculosis Institute of Chicago. 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 
35th Annual Sale of Red Cross Christmas Seals 

Whereas, the annual sale of Red Cross Christmas 
Seals is about to get under way in Chicago; and 

Whereas, the citizens of Chicago and Cook 
County have always given generously in this an- 
nual appeal that our citizens buy and use these 
Christmas Seals to carry on the nation-wide fight 
against tuberculosis; and 

Whereas, it is to the interest and well-being of 
all our people that we do everything possible to 
protect our homes from the tragedies resulting from 
the ravages of this disease which spares neither 
young or old; and 

Whereas, this sincere appeal which comes to us 
at the approach of each Holiday Season should find 
our people deeply appreciative of the blessing of 
good health and the many other benefits we in 
America enjoy, and especially at this time of the 
year open their hearts to the needs of those less 
fortunate; and 

Whereas, the Tuberculosis Institute of Chicago 
and Cook County is deserving of the support of all 
our citizens in recognition of the splendid and ex- 
tensive program of tuberculosis prevention they 
have carried on these many years; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, acting as 
Mayor of Chicago, do hereby designate Monday, 
November 24th, as the opening day of the Christ- 
mas Seal Sale and I urge that all our people use 
these seals on their greeting cards and gift pack- 
ages. Let them be a sign to the world that our 
community is alive to its responsibilities and, as 



5978 

in previous years, is doing its part in a great na- 
tional drive to keep us a happy and healthy nation. 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

Dated this 24th day of November, A. D. 1941. 

Designation of "Keep 'Em Flying Week" and "Keep 
'Em Flying Day". 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 

Whereas, our nation is now engaged in a great 
national defense program for the protection of our 
national welfare and the preservation of the prin- 
ciples of free government throughout the world, 
and 

Whereas, an integral part of this national de- 
fense program is the development of a fully 
equipped Air Force and the procurement of an 
adequate number of well-trained pilots, and 

Whereas, the Army Air Corps now offers an 
Aviation Cadet training to single men between the 
ages of 20 and 27, who can meet the physical and 
mental qualifications, leading to appointment as 
officer pilots. Upon completion of this IVz months' 
training course these men will be commissioned 
Second Lieutenants in the Army Air Corps Reserve 
and placed on active duty for three years at a sal- 
ary of $245.50 per month, together with a bonus 
of $500.00 a year upon completion of their active 
duty, and 

Whereas, this training offers a splendid future to 
the young men of our community, not only in the 
Army but also in the rapidly growing field of com- 
mercial aviation. 

Now Therefore, as Mayor of Chicago, Illinois, I 
endorse the National "Keep 'Em Flying Week" 
commencing November 27, 1941 and proclaim 
Thursday, December 4 as Chicago "Keep 'Em Fly- 
ing Day." 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

Designation of "Good Neighbor Day". 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 
"Good Neighbor Day" 

Whereas, the major portion of the world is now 
engaged in deadly conflict, and the policy of the 
Good Neighbor has ceased to exist in many lands 
where freedom has been forfeited and friendliness 
is no longer possible; and 

Whereas, this deplorable world-wide condition 
brings home to us more strongly than ever the im- 
portance of friendly neighborliness and its influence 
on the future of men and nations; and 

Whereas, the fundamental strength of these 
United States is in the neighborly feeling which 
links our communities and cities — the backbone of 
democracy — the continuation of which good neigh- 
bor principles is necessary not only for the con- 
tinued stimulation of the nation's morale but also 
for the preservation of the nation itself; and 



December 1, 1941 

Whereas, New Year's Day, even from the earliest 
times, has been the traditional day for renewing 
friendships and forgetting petty differences of the 
past in celebration of a new opportunity for col- 
laboration and cooperation by carrying out the 
spirit of the good neighbor; and 

Whereas, this year more than ever before the 
citizens of the Western Hemisphere have the op- 
portunity to engender a spirit of good will among 
the democracies and free people of this hemi- 
sphere, pointing toward a more complete under- 
standing of godliness and good neighborliness; and 

Whereas, for the past several years Good Neigh- 
bor Day has been officially proclaimed by govern- 
ors of states and mayors of the larger cities 
throughout the United States, following the first 
such proclamation issued by the late Governor 
James Rolph, Jr. of California at the request of 
Benjamin E. Neal, founder of "Good Neighbor 
Day" on December 26, 1933; and 

Whereas, it is the plan this year to make Good 
Neighbor Day a national celebration, including all 
nations of the Western Hemisphere in the cere- 
mony. 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
Chicago, do proclaim January 1, 1942 as Good 
Neighbor Day and urge all citizens to cooperate in 
the observance of this democratic demonstration, 
and to participate as fully as possible in such fes- 
tivities as are planned for the occasion. 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

Dated this 25th day of November, 1941.

having a frontage on S. Wabash Avenue 104.5 feet 
with a uniform depth of 145.64 feet and contains 
approximately 15,219 square feet. The entire area 
is improved with a seven-story and basement com- 



mercial loft building entirely occupied by various 
tenants in the business of light manufacture. The 
legal description of Parcel No. 31 is as follows: 

The west twenty-five feet (25') of Lot Twenty- 
five (25), also the East one half i'EVz) of the 
alley lying west of and adjoining said Lot, all 
in Stevens Resubdivision of Lots Twenty-one 

(21) , Twenty-two (22), Twenty-three (23), 
Twenty-four (24) and Twenty-five (25) in 
Block Seventeen (17), all in Herrington's Addi- 
tion to Chicago, also the west twenty-five feet 
(25') of Lots Twenty-six (26), Twenty-seven 
(27) and Twenty-eight (28) in Block Seven- 
teen (17), also the East one half (EVs) of the

to Chicago, being a Subdivision of Blocks Four- 
teen (14), Fifteen (15), Sixteen (16) and Seven- 
teen (17) in the Assessor's Division of the North- 
west fractional quarter of section Twenty-two 

(22) , Township Thirty-nine (39) North, Range

' Meridian, in the City of Chicago, County of 

Cook and State of Illinois. 

The property taken consists of a reversionary 
right and right of user of 25 feet lying west of the 
property under the structure of the Chicago Rapid 
Transit Company and a reversion in the east 10 feet 
of the 20 foot alley immediately on the west of this 
right of way. 

At the present time the property enjoys access 
and shipping facilities from a 45 foot easement 
which is intensively used to the extent of some 
700 truck movements per month. The subway 
construction will reduce this shipping facility to a 
15 foot alley which is insufficient to serve the 
property with the shipping facilities at present 
enjoyed. The truck and trailer commonly used is 
approximately 33 feet in length, it is obviously 
impossible to handle the shipping without an 
interior adjustment of the building to provide an 
inside loading dock adjacent to the freight ele- 
vator. The owners of the property have agreed 
to accept for the part taken and damage to 
the remainder including reconstruction of their 
shipping facilities the sum of Fifteen Thou- 
sand Three Hundred Seventy-Two Dollars

accordance with his communication of November

to release the sum of $45,000.00 of the reserve with- 
held under the terms of contract D-6E— Dearborn 
Street Subway — with M. J. Boyle and Company, 
contractor, upon the filing with the City Comp- 
troller of the surety's consent to such payment; and 
the City Comptroller and the City Treasurer are 
authorized to pass for payment voucher in accord- 
ance with the provisions of this order, when prop- 
erly approved by the Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways. 

The following is the communication attached to 
the foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

November 21, 1941. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman of the Committee 
on Finance of the City Council, City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Contract D-6E of the Dearborn 
Street Subway with M. J. Boyle and Company, ap- 
proved by the City Council on May 8, 1940 (J.C.P. 
p. 2472), is now substantially completed. This con- 
tract covers the station and portal near W. Division 
street and N. Milwaukee avenue. 

The reserve percentage is 15% of the earnings 
on this contract, and at the present time this 
amounts to $136,674 for work paid out of PWA 
funds, plus $3,281 for work paid out of Non-PWA 
funds. M. J. Boyle and Company is also completing 
Contracts D-2C and D-2D of the Dearborn Street 
Subway on which the present reserve amounts to 
$50,700 and $38,000, respectively. 

The Contractor is now requesting the release of 
part of the $136,674 retained on Contract D-6E. 
However, under the Grant Agreement with the 
PWA, there is a requirement that 10% be retained 
until all work is completed. This would allow a 
payment of $45,000 and still leave $91,674 plus 
$3,281 as a guarantee against all possible claims 
against the Contractor. 

It is recommended, therefore, that authority be 
granted to pay M. J. Boyle and Company $45,000 
of the PWA reserve held under Contract D-6E of 
the Dearborn Street Subway, leaving a PWA re- 
serve of $91,674 and a Non-PWA reserve of 
$3,281 to cover all possible claims against the 
Contractor. This request is subject to the Con- 
tractor furnishing releases satisfactory to the City. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) PiiiLip Harbington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways.

November 21, 1941. 

To the Honorable, Chairman and Members of the 
Committee on Finance, of the City Council, City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Contract S-IOC of the State Street 
Subway with the Robert R. Anderson Company, 
extending from Adams to Van Buren streets in 
State street was approved by the City Council on 
September 18, 1940 (C.J. p. 3144). This contract 
is completed with the exception of the pavement 
which is now being placed over their structures. 
This work will be completed within the next two 
weeks. 

The Contractor has now requested the release of 
some of the reserve held on this contract. The re- 
serve percentage is 15% of the earnings and at the 
present time amount to $50,852. However, under 
the Grant Agreement with the P.W.A. there is a 
requirement that 10% be retained until all work 
is completed. This would allow a payment of 



$16,000 and still leave $34,852 as a guarantee 
against all possible claims against the Contractor. 

It is recommended, therefore, that authority be 
granted to pay the Robert R. Anderson Company 
the sum of $16,000 from the reserve held under 
Contract S-IOC of the State Street Subway, leaving 
a balance of $34,852 to cover all possible claims

ular meeting held on October 20, 1941, after due

posed use is to be located in an apartment district

to such a point of completion that the roadway of 
N. and S. State street, between E. and W. Lake 
street and E. 11th street under a portion of which 
the Initial System of Subways has been constructed, 
now requires that said portion of N. and S. State 
street be improved by the construction of a new 
pavement; and 

Whereas, To provide for such improvement on 
July 24, 1941 (Council Journal page 5238) the City 
Council of the City of Chicago passed an ordinance 
authorizing the construction by the City of Chicago 
of such improvement at an estimated cost of Six 
Hundred Twenty Thousand Dollars ($620,000.00) 
to be paid out of Motor Fuel Tax Funds and the 
Traction Fund pursuant to plans and specifications 
approved by the commissioner of streets and elec- 
tricity of the City of Chicago; 

Now therefore 

Be it Ordained hy the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. 

Paragraph 1. The City Council of the City of 
Chicago finds and determines that in order properly 
to improve the roadway of N. and S. State street 
between E. and W. Lake street and E. 11th street 
by the construction of a new pavement including 
curbs, drainage facilities, and other auxiliary struc- 
tures and facilities appurtenant to said improve- 
ment (hereinafter sometimes called the "improve- 
ment") it is necessary to require the removal of 
the west street car track of the three (3) street car 
tracks now located in N. State street between E. 
and W. Lake street and E. and W. Madison street, 
which track has not been used for the operation 
of street cars for a period of about seventeen (17) 
years last past; and the City Council finds and de- 
termines that said west track is obsolete and unnec- 
essary and that if said track is permitted to remain 
in the roadway it will obstruct, interfere with and 
prevent the proper construction of said improve- 
ment and will deprive the public of the full use 
and benefit of the improvement. 

Paragraph 2. The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago finds and determines that in order properly to 
improve the roadway of N. and S. State street be- 
tween E. and W. Lake street and E. 11th street by 
the construction of a new pavement including 
curbs, drainage facilities, and other auxiliary struc- 
tures and facilities appurtenant to said improve- 
ment (hereinafter sometimes called the "improve- 
ment") it is necessary to require the removal and 
relocation of the middle and east street car tracks 



of the three (3) street car tracks now located in 
N. State street between E. and W. Lake street and 
E. and W. Madison street; and the City Council finds 
and determines that if said middle and east tracks 
are permitted to remain in the roadway in their 
present location they will obstruct, interfere with 
and prevent the proper construction of said im- 
provement and will deprive the public of the full 
use and benefit of the improvement; and that in 
order that such proper construction and public use 
and benefit may be secured said middle and east 
tracks should be relocated so that the center line 
between said two tracks when so relocated shall 
conform substantially to the center line of the road- 
way and to the grade of the new pavement both as 
shown on the plans for said improvement approved 
by the commissioner of streets and electricity. 

Paragraph 3. The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago finds and determines that in order properly 
to improve the roadway of N. and S. State street 
between E. and W. Lake street and E. 11th street 
by the construction of a new pavement including 
curbs, drainage facilities, and other auxiliary struc- 
tures and facilities appurtenant to said improve- 
ment (hereinafter sometimes called the "improve- 
ment") it is necessary to require 

(a) the removal from 

E. and W. Randolph street, 
E. and W. V/ashington street, 
E. and W. Madison street, 
W. Adams street and 
E. Van Buren street, 

and their intersections with N. and S. State street, 
respectively, of those portions of the north and 
south street car tracks, together with their 
crossings, connecting curves and other special 
track work, which tracks and special track work 
have not been used for the operation of street 
cars for a period of about seventeen (17) years 
last past and are now located within the limits 
of the improvement as shown on the plans for 
said improvement as approved by the commis- 
sioner of streets and electricity; and 

(b) a change in grade of those portions of the 
north and south street car tracks, together with 
their crossings, connecting curves and other spe- 
cial track work, which tracks and special track 
work have been and are used for the scheduled 
operation of street cars and are now located with- 
in the limits of the improvement as shown on 
the plans for said improvement as approved by 
the commissioner of streets and electricity, so 
that such tracks and special track work shall con- 
form substantially to the grade of the new pave- 
ment as shown on said plans, and which tracks 
and special track work are located in 

E. and W. Lake street, 

W. Van Buren street, 

E. and W. Harrison street and 

W. Polk street, 

and in their intersections with N. and S. State 
street, respectively; 

and the City Council finds and determines that said 
unused tracks and special track work ai'e obsolete 
and unnecessary and that if said tracks and special 
track work are permitted to remain in the road- 
ways they will obstruct, interfere with and prevent 
the proper construction of said improvem.ent and 
will deprive the public of the full use and benefit 
of the improvement and the City Council finds and 
determines that said tracks and special track work 
now in use but which are located at a grade which

Allowance of a Variation from the Requirements of 
the Chicago Zoning Ordinance (No. 6418 and 
Nos. 6419-6421 N. Artesian Av., Nos. 6419- 
6421 N. Campbell Av. and Nos. 6416- 
6418 N. Western Av.). 

Alderman Rowan moved to reconsider the vote by 
which the City Council at its last preceding regular 
meeting passed an ordinance for allowance of a vari- 
ation from the requirements of the Chicago Zoning 
Ordinance as to the premises known as No. 6418 and 
Nos. 6419-6421 N. Artesian avenue, Nos. 6419-6421 
N. Campbell avenue and Nos. 6416-6418 N. Western 
avenue, as is noted on pages 5950-5951 of the Journal 
of the Proceedings of November 25, 1941. 

The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Rowan thereupon presented an ordinance 
for allowance of a variation from the requirements 
of the Chicago Zoning Ordinance as to said premises 
and moved to substitute it for the ordinance on which 
the vote was reconsidered, and to pass the substitute 
ordinance. 

The motion prevailed and said substitute ordinance 
was passed by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen Dickerson, Grant, Cohen, Douglas, 
Smith, Daley, Olin, Lindell, Rowan, Connelly, Hart- 
nett, Hogan, Kovarik, Boyle, Murphy, O'Hallaren, 
Duffy, Sonnenschein, Kacena, Bowler, Sobota, Sain, 
Kells, Gillespie, Upton, Keane, Rostenkowski, Zwiefka, 
Orlikoski, Walsh, Callahan, Cullerton, Cowhey, Crowe, 
Bauler, Grealis, Meyer, Young, Hilburn, Quirk, 
Keenan and Quinn — 42. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said substitute ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, On July 14, 1941, the Board of Appeals 
adopted the following resolution: 

"Whereas, Willarch, Inc., owner, filed, April 17, 
1941, an application under the zoning ordinance 
to permit, in an apartment district, on premises 
at 6418 and 6419-6421 N. Artesian avenue and 
6419-6421 N. Campbell avenue, and in a com- 
mercial district at 6416-6418 N. Western avenue, 
the establishment and operation of an automo- 
bile parking lot; and 

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered April 16, 1941 reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with require- 
ments of zoning ordinance.'; 

and 

Whereas, the proposed use is to be located in 
an apartment district and a commercial district 
and would violate the strict letter of the zoning 
ordinance; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this 
application by the Board of Appeals at its regu- 
lar meeting held on May 5 and 26, 1941, after 
due public notice thereof by publication in the 
Chicago Journal of Commerce on April 19, 1941; 
and 

Whereas, the use district maps show that the 
premises are located in an apartment district and 
a commercial district; and 



Whereas, it has been represented to the Board 
that the properties in question located in the 
apartment district have been platted subject to 
a restriction in words and figures as follows: 

'All conveyances of property in this subdivi- 
sion are made subject to the following provi- 
sions: All lots fronting N. Rockwell st.; N. 
Maplewood av.; N. Campbell av. and N. Ar- 
tesian av. shall have a building line of twenty 
(20) feet as indicated on the above plat; ex- 
cept that bay windows may project five (5) 
feet and open porches ten (10) feet beyond 
said building line. All buildings shall front 
with the lots as platted. Only residences and 
fiat buildings costing not less than three thou- 
sand ($3,000) dollars shall be placed on lots 
fronting N. Rockwell st.; N. Maplewood av.; 
N. Campbell av. and N. Artesian av. Only 
buildings for use wholly or in part for busi- 
ness purposes not less than two (2) full stories 
in height and constructed of brick, stone or 
concrete shall be erected on Devon av. and N. 
Western av. These restrictions shall not pre- 
vent the erection of barns, garages, or other 
out buildings for private use not nearer than 
one hundred (100) feet to the front of any 
lot.' 

but that the said restriction is not legally opera- 
tive or binding upon the parties to said restric- 
tion; and 

Whereas, it is the judgment of the board if 
the said personal restrictions are not binding 
upon the parties thereto the applicant should be 
granted relief; and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals is authorized 
by law in cases where there are practical diffi- 
culties or particular hardship in the way of 
carrying out the strict letter of the zoning ordi- 
nance to hear and recommend variations of such 
ordinance to the City Council under rules pro- 
vided in such ordinance; and 

Whereas, in the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the Board 
of Appeals to recommend variations to the City 
Council there appears the following rule in Sec- 
tion 28, paragraph (19); 

'Permission to maintain in a Residence, 
Apartment, Commercial or Manufacturing Dis- 
trict a parking lot for self-propelled motor 
vehicles under such conditions as will safe- 
guard the appropriate use of neighboring prop- 
erty.'; 

and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises finds 
that the applicant should be granted relief on the 
ground of particular hardship in the way of 
carrying out the strict letter of the zoning ordi- 
nance on condition that the proposed parking lot 
in the apartment district on premises at 6419-21 
N. Campbell avenue, 6418 N. Artesian avenue 
and 6419-21 N. Artesian avenue shall be estab- 
lished not nearer than 6 feet to the north line of 
the premises affected and set back in accordance 
with the building line now in existence on North 
Artesian avenue and North Campbell avenue; 
that fences of substantial woven wire of the 
chain link type with anchored steel posts set in 
Portland cement not less than four feet and not

more than six feet high shall be installed on all 
interior, alley and rear lot lines of said parking 
lot and set back on North Campbell avenue and 
North Artesian avenue in accordance with the 
building line now in existence on said streets; 
that said parking lot shall be leveled and graded 
substantially to the established inside grade on 
North Artesian avenue and North Campbell ave- 
nue and shall be surfaced with steam boiler cin- 
ders and crushed stone or other like material and 
shall be properly rolled, bound and treated with 
an asphalt binder in such a way as to provide 
ground drainage and a surface which will pre- 
vent dusting; that no gasoline, oil or other com- 
modities shall be sold upon the premises; that 
there shall be planting and sodding along all the 
boundaries of said lot and between the sidewalk 
and building line on North Campbell avenue and 
North Artesian avenue and maintained at all 
times; that said premises shall not be operated 
as a parking lot before 8 A. M. and after 8 P. M., 
except on Thursdays and Saturdays the said lot 
may remain open until 10 P. M.; that said prem- 
ises shall not be operated as a parking lot at any 
time on Sundays; that no fees shall be charged 
for parking automobiles; that all permits neces- 
sary for the establishment of the proposed use 
shall be obtained within three months after the 
passage of this ordinance; that all other ordi- 
nances of the City of Chicago shall be complied 
with before a certificate of occupancy is issued 
herein, and that any violation of the conditions 
imposed herein shall annul and void any permits 
issued for such use; and 

Whereas, the Board further finds that the pro- 
posed use is to be located in an apartment district 
immediately adjacent to a commercial district 
and also in a commercial district and will be so 
conducted that the appropriate use of neighbor- 
ing property will not be injured thereby; that 
there is particular hardship in this case and that 
the variation may be made consistently in har- 
mony with the intent and purpose of the zoning 
regulations and would not be detrimental to the 
public welfare, safety or health, 

Resolved, that the Board of Appeals by virtue 
of the authority conferred upon it does hereby 
recommend that the City Council enact the fol- 
lowing ordinance: 

'Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

A Proclamation 

Whereas, the Congress of the United States has 
declared our country to be in a state of war; and 



Whereas, our very shores are threatened by the 
onslaught of a ruthless invader; and 

Whereas, for generations Americans have rallied 
to victory around our national emblem, the Stars 
and Stripes, which has come to be accepted as a 
symbol of justice throughout the world, therefore, 
it is of extreme importance in this time of national 
crisis that this, our symbol of national unity and 
victory, be in fullest evidence. 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, as Mayor 
of Chicago, do proclaim and urge that the Flag of 
the United States of America shall be publicly and 
prominently displayed upon the homes and places 
of business of all of our citizens; and I do further 
direct that the Flag shall be similarly displayed by 
all public and semi-public institutions, organiza- 
tions, offices and bureaus for the duration of this 
war, to the end that this tangible manifestation of 
our patriotism may be a continuous reminder to 
all citizens of the American principles for which it 
stands— liberty, freedom and democracy — and as a 
constant inspiration to patriotism, helpfulness and 
service in the defense of our country leading to vic- 
tory and the utter defeat of our aggressors. 

Dated this 9th day of December, A. D., 1941. 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor.

City of Chicago

December 2, 1941. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Your attention is hereby invited to 
a recent court decision affecting the city's Dry 
Cleaners and Spotters Ordinance. 



6030 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 10, 1941 



This ordinance passed many years ago for the 
purpose of regulating and licensing dry cleaning 
establishments was originally designed to protect 
lives and health, as well as property, against the 
hazards of fire and explosion. When enacted all 
dry cleaners used, flammable solvents such as 
naphtha, gasoline, acetone, and ether. The valid- 
ity of the ordinance and the power of the city to 
regulate the entire dry cleaning business were 
upheld by the Supreme Court of Illinois in the 
case of Klever Shampay Karpet Kleaners v. City 
of Chicago (1926), 323 111. 368. 

Some years later certain chemical companies 
developed chlorinated hydrocarbon cleaning 
solvents, which solvents are not flammable but 
are, however, toxic and because of their toxic 
properties dangerous to life and health. Of these 
the ones most generally in use in the dry cleaning 
industry are known as carbon tetrachloride, per- 
chlorethylene, and trichlorethylene. These sol- 
vents vaporize rapidly at room temperatures. 
The gases from them are heavier than air and 
produce a degenerative effect upon the human 
body when breathed ,into the lungs or meeting 
skin surfaces. The lining of the lungs is pervious 
to them and when they enter the blood stream 
act as a fat solvent in much the same manner 
as they dissolve grease spots and soil in garments 
being cleaned, thus causing hemorrhagic con- 
ditions and a serious health menace. 

Along with the development of these new syn- 
thetic solvents numerous dry cleaning plants pro- 
fessing to use the non-flammable solvents were 
set up in different parts of the city, many of them 
in disregard of the city's zoning ordinance. 

In order to subject these new establishments 
to regulation and license and furnish employees 
and the public protection against them, your 
honorable body on June 5, 1940 amended the Dry 
Cleaners and Spotters Ordinance and brought 
under it these new synthetic process cleaners. 
This precipitated litigation. The solvent manu- 
facturers and the new process cleaners, in their 
efforts to escape license and regulation and con- 
tinue placing their plants wherever they saw fit 
to place them (in dwellings, hotels, department 
stores, places of public assembly, and wherever 
they could most readily attract prospective cus- 
tomers) filed an injunction suit in the Circuit 
Court of Cook County in the name of a so-called 
Cleaners Guild and certain operators of synthetic 
process plants who had established themselves 
at locations in violation of the zoning ordinance 
and by the amendment were faced with further 
restrictions as to locaitions. The Circuit Court 
issued a temporary injunction restraining the 
city from enforcing the provisions of the ordi- 
nance against the plaintiffs. From this injunction 
order the city took an appeal to the Appellate 
Court of Illinois and also proceeded before a Mas- 
ter in Chancery in the taking of evidence to sup- 
port the final hearing of the cause. 



On November 28, 1941 the Appellate Court 
rendered its decision holding that the lower 
court's injunction was improvidently issued and 
reversing it. The court's opinion, written by Mr. 
Justice Friend and concurred in by Justices Scan- 
Ion and Sullivan, upholds fully the city's con- 
tention respecting its authority to exercise its 
heklth powers and bring under control the syn- 
thetic process cleaners. It holds that the health 
power is one of the most important of the city's 
police powers and that it is inherent in the city 
to subject to license and regulation dry cleaners 
using toxic solvents. It sustains the right of the 
city to require the synthetic process cleaners, 
along with the naphtha process cleaners, to con- 
form to the zoning ordinance, the hazardous use 
units chapter of the municipal code, as well as 
the Dry Cleaners and Spotters Ordinance. It up- 
holds the right to keep these establishments using 
solvents which emit toxic vapors out of dwellings 
and other places where individuals live and con- 
gregate in numbers and it strengthens the city's 
power to cope with dry cleaners who for pecuniary 
gain seemed determined to establish and operate 
their plants in disregard of the health and safety 
provisions of the municipal code. Furthermore, 
it is believed the decision will prove to be helpful 
to the city in resisting injunctions in other cases, 
as it clearly points out that courts of equity should 
not lend their aid to violate ordinances predicated 
on the admitted right of the city to enforce health 
and safety measures, especially when it appears 
extremely doubtful whether those seeking an in- 
junction can ultimately prevail. 

A copy of the Appellate court's opinion is en- 
closed herewith.

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

An Ordinance 
Authorizing the issuance of $1,200,000 Refunding 
Bonds of 1942, of the City of Chicago, and pro- 
viding for the levy of taxes for payment thereof. 

Whereas, the City of Chicago heretofore issued 
and sold in conformity with law its interest bearing 
bonds of which $1,200,000 in principal amount and 
interest thereon will become due January 1, 1942, 
and interest upon said bonds has always been paid 
as it became due, and on account of the delay in 
fixing the valuation of taxable property in and for 
Cook County the extension of taxes for collection 
_ and payment thereof has been unduly delayed so 
that money will be available to pay such interest 
but not sufficient for the payment of the princi- 
pal of said bonds due January 1, 1942, although 
the ordinances authorizing said bonds made pro- 
vision for the levy and collection of sufficient 
taxes to meet such payment; and 

Whereas, said bonds ,were authorized for 
proper corporate purposes and sold and the pro- 
ceeds received by the City of Chicago and said 
bonds now constitute outstanding legal indebted- 
ness of said City and in order to take care of the 
principal in the amount of $1,200,000 due January 
1, 1942, and to preserve the credit of the City of 
Chicago by providing that such maturing bonds 
may be paid from the proceeds of the sale of bonds 
authorized and issued to refund the same, it is 
necessary that the City of Chicago authorize, is- 
sue and sell its refunding bonds to supply means 
to meet said bonds maturing on January 1, 1942, 
which can be done to the advantage of the City of 
Chicago and in a manner that will not increase the 
indebtedness of said City; and 

Whereas, under "An Act authorizing any county, 
city, village, incorporated town, school district, sani- 
tary district, forest preserve district or park district 
to issue refunding bonds and to provide for the levy 
of taxes for the payment thereof," approved May 
6, 1935, and other statutes, refunding bonds may 
be issued and sold to refund said bonds and the pro- 
ceeds used to pay the principal thereof when pre- 
sented for payment and at this time such refunding 
bonds can be sold bearing a less interest rate than 
borne by the old bonds and unless such refunding 
is presently provided for, the credit standing of 
the City of Chicago will be placed in jeopardy. 
Now, Therefore, 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Section 1. For the purpose of refunding the 
principal of bonds of the City of Chicago in the 
amount of $1,200,000 and due January 1, 1942, de- 
scribed as follows:

there are authorized to be issued Refunding Bonds 
of 1942, of the City of Chicago in the principal 
amount of $1,200,000. Said Refunding Bonds 
shall be dated as of January 1, 1942, shall be num- 
bered from 1 to 1200 inclusive, shall be of the de- 
nomination of $1,000 each and shall mature January 
1, 1951, and shall bear interest at the rate of Two

semi-annually thereafter on the first days of Janu- 
ary and July in each year. Both principal of and 
interest upon said bonds shall be payable at the 
office of the City Treasurer in the City of Chicago, 
Illinois, or at the office of the fiscal agent of the 
City of Chicago in the City of New York, at the 
option of the holder. 

The refunding bonds shall be signed by the 
Mayor of said City, and shall be sealed with the 
corporate seal thereof and attested by the City 
Clerk and countersigned by the City Comptroller, 
and the interest coupons evidencing the interest 
on said bonds shall be executed with the facsimile 
signature of said officials v/hich officials by the 
execution of said bonds shall adopt as and for 
their own proper signature their respective facsi- 
mile signatures appearing upon each of said inter- 
est coupons. 

Section 2. Each of the refunding bonds shall 
be subject to registration as to principal in the 
name of the owner on the books of the City 
Comptroller, such registration being noted upon 
each bond so registered and after such registration 
payment of the principal thereof shall be made only 
to the registered owner. Any bond so registered, 
upon the request in writing of such owner, per- 
sonally or by attorney in fact, may be transferred 
either to a designated transferee or to bearer, and 
the principal of any bond so transferred and reg- 
istered to bearer shall thereupon be and become 
payable to bearer in like manner as if such bond 
had not been registered. Registration of any bonds 
as to principal shall not restrain the negotiability 
of the coupons thereto attached, which shall con- 
tinue to be negotiable by delivery merely.

provision for registration shall be in substantially 
the following form:

of this sec- 



tion shall be included in the annual appropriation 
bill of the City of Chicago for each of the years 
aforesaid and the City of Chicago hereby obligates 
itself annually in due time and manner to perform 
all things and take all action required by law to 
carry out the provisions of this section. 

In the event proceeds of taxes hereby levied are 
not available in time to meet any paymients of 
principal of and interest upon said refunding bonds, 
then the fiscal officers of said City are hereby di^ 
rected to make such payments from any funds of 
the City that may be temporarily so used and 
when the proceeds of such taxes are received 
such funds shall be reimbursed all to the end that 
the credit of the City may be preserved. 

A copy of this ordinance duly certified by the 
City Clerk shall be filed in the office of the County 
Clerk of Cook County not earlier than ten days 
after its publication and shall constitute authority 
for the extension and collection of such taxes as 
required by the constitution. 

Money received from the proceeds of such taxes 
shall be deposited in a special fund designated as 
"Refunding Bonds of 1942 and Interest Sinking 
Fund Account of the City of Chicago" and faith- 
fully applied to the payment of the refunding 
bonds and interest thereon. 

Taxes levied by this ordinance for the year 
.1941 will be extended for collection in the year 
1942 and before the time such taxes are so extend- 
ed for collection, there may be received by the 
City Comptroller additional proceeds of bond 
taxes applicable to the payment of bonds hereby 
refunded and the money so received from bond 
taxes that is applicable to the payment of bonds 
hereby refunded shall be placed in the Sinking 
Fund created by this ordinance and used to pay 
the interest upon and the principal of said refund- 
ing bonds and the levy made by this ordinance 
for the year 1941 prior to extension thereof shall 
be reduced and abated in that amount which shall 
be accomplished by the City Comptroller filing 
with the County Clerk of Cook County a certifi- 
cate showing the amount to be abated. 

Any proceeds of bond taxes heretofore levied 
for the payment of the bonds hereby refunded, 
received after the taxes hereby levied for the year 
1941 shall have been extended for collection shall 
be placed in said Sinking Fund and by the amount 
thereof, the taxes levied by this ordinance for suc- 
ceeding years shall be reduced and abated propor- 
tionally, to the end that there shall be no dupli- 
cation of taxation arising from the extension of 
said taxes. 

After the adoption of this ordinance, if ad- 
ditional proceeds of bond taxes are received which 
are applicable to the payment of the bonds hereby 
refunded, such money shall be used in paying 
bonds due January 1, 1942, thus reducing the 
amount of bonds necessary to be refunded, and the 
amount of taxes provided to be levied and collected 
by this ordinance shall be abated accordingly and 



the City Comptroller shall file with the County 
Clerk of Cook County a certificate showing such 
amount to be abated from the taxes hereby levied. 

Section 6. If the money received from the 
taxes levied for the payment of refunding bonds 
is not immediately necessary for their payment 
the Treasurer and City Comptroller may invest 
said money in bonds or other interest bearing 
obligations of the United States or in bonds of the 
State of Illinois. 

The maturity date of the invested securities 
shall be prior to the due date of the refunding 
bonds for the payment of which said money was 
collected and said securities m.ay be sold when 
necessary to obtain cash to meet refunding bonds 
and interest payments. 

Section 7. Any money hereafter available from 
uncollected taxes levied for prior years for pay- 
ment of the bonds hereby refunded shall be placed 
in the Sinking Fund Account hereinabove de- 
signated and such money shall be used to pay such 
refunding bonds and interest thereon as herein 
provided. 

Section 8. It is hereby found and determined 
that on account of the continued complications and 
delay that surround the extension and collection 
of taxes in Cook County, due to the reassessment 
of real property ordered in 1928, it is necessary 
that these refunding bonds be authorized and sold 
at this time so that the money will be available on 
January 1, 1942, to pay the bonds hereinabove 
described and prevent the City of Chicago from 
defaulting upon its obligations and thus protect 
its financial credit standing. 

Section 9. This ordinance shall be in force 
upon its adoption and publication.

Signature of the Mayor to Certain Refunding 
Bonds.

way Company under its right-of-way at approx- 
imately N. Ogallah avenue. The said improve- 
ment shall consist of Portland cement concrete 
walkways twelve (12) feet wide on the said ap- 
proaches and in the said pedestrian subway, re- 
inforced concrete retaining walls, hand railings, 
excavation, lighting, drainage and the acquisition 
of the necessary right-of-way for the portion of 
said improvement to be constructed between said 
railroad right-of-way and N. Avondale avenue. 
The total length of the improvement will be 
approximately 430 feet, and the clear width of 
the same will be approximately twelve (12) feet 
on the northerly approach, and on the southerly 
approach the width will be approximately thirty- 
three (33) feet in order to provide for retaining 
walls and side slopes. All the cost of constructing 
the said improvement, including the acquisition 
of the necessary right-of-way and engineering, 
is estimated as $22,000.00, and is to be paid out 
of that part of the Motor Fuel Tax Fund which has 
been or may be allotted to the City of Chicago. 

Section 2. The Commissioner of Public Works 
is hereby authorized and directed to negotiate 
with the owner or owners of the property neces- 
sary for the right-of-way for the purpose of pur- 
chasing said property for the City of Chicago, and 
to endeavor to agree with such owner or owners 
upon a price for the purchase of said property. 

Section 3. In case the Commissioner of Public 
Works is able to agree with the owner or owners 
of the property, or any part thereof, or any right 
or interest therein, he is hereby authorized to pur- 
chase said property, or so much thereof as he 
shall be able to acquire; the Commissioner of 
Public Works is further authorized to accept title 
to the property to be purchased, subject to tax 
claims and other liens and incumbrances, if any, 
making a fair deduction from the purchase price 
for any such claims or incumbrances, providing 
that in the opinion of the Corporation Counsel the 
existence thereof will not endanger the City's 
right of possession; and the Commissioner of 
Public Works is further authorized to settle all 
such claims and incumbrances on a reasonable 
basis, in his discretion, charging moneys so ex- 
pended as purchase price for said premises. 

Section 4. In case of the inability of the Com- 
missioner of Public Works to agree with the 
owner or owners of said property, or of any pai't 
thereof, upon a price therefor, or in case the 
owner or ownei's of said property, or any of them, 
are incapable of consenting, or their names or 
residences are unknown, or they are non-residents 
of the State of Illinois, the Commissioner of Public 
Works shall report such facts to the Corporation 
Counsel.

G-10 of the contract approximately 600 sq. yds. of 
wood block pavement at $5.20 per sq. yd., thereby 
effecting an estimated saving of $1,200.00, and the

City of Chicago 
Department of 
Subways and Superhighways 

December 5, 1941. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance, of the City Council, 
City of Chicago. 

Gentlemen — Contract D-2B of the Dearborn 
Street Subway, extending from N. Dearborn and W. 
Washington Streets to W. Lake and N. Wells Streets, 
with the John C. Tully Company was approved by 
: the City Council on July 31, 1940 (C. J. p. 2948) . 

This contract provided for placing a wood block 
. pavement with macadam base over the Randolph- 
Washington Station. As Dearborn Street is to be 
repaved in the near future, a saving can be effected 
by placing a temporary bituminous macadam pave- 
ment over this area. The Contractor has submitted 
a price of $3.20 per sq. yd. for this type of pave- 
ment, which has the approval of the P. W. A. and 
is considered reasonable by this Department. This 
is $2.00 per sq. yd. less than the contract price and 
as there are approximately 600 sq. yds. of pave- 
ment to be placed, an estimated savings of $1,200.00 
can be had. 

It is recommended therefore that the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways be author- 
ized to order the John C. Tully Comoany, Con- 
tractor for Contract D-2B of the Dearborn Street 
Subway, to place approximately 600 sq. yds. of bi- 
tuminous macadam pavement at $3.20 per sq. yd., 
and eliminate from Item G-10 of the contract ap- 
proximately 600 sq. yds. of wood block pavement 
at $5.20 per so. yd., thereby effecting an estimated 
saving of $1,200.00. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways.

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Subways and 
Superhighways be and he is hereby authorized, in 
accordance with his recommendation of December 
6, 1941, attached hereto and made a part hereof, 
to modify the specifications in connection with con- 
tract F-1, F-2, F-3 combined of the State Street 
Subway with W. E. O'Neil Construction Company, 
for item A- 11 (straight structural glass for station 
walls). A- 12 (curved structural glass for station 
walls), and A- 13 (signs on structural glass) and 
accept the contractor's proposed reduction in max- 
imum prices from $2.30 to $2.22 for item A-11, from 
■ $3.34 to $3.23 for item A-12, and from $1.34 to $1.12 
for item A- 13, for a total estimated saving of 
$1,811.00, and to reduce the quantity of hollow tile 
or concrete block (item A-10) from 25,000 cubic 
feet to 22,000 cubic feet, thereby effecting a fur- 
ther estimated saving of $1,860.00, and the City 
Comptroller and City Treasurer are authorized and 
directed to pass for payment vouchers in accord- 
ance with the provisions of this order when ap- 
proved by the Commissioner of Subways and Su- 
perhighways. 

The communication attached to the foregoing order 
reads as follows: 

City of Chicago 
Department of 
Subways and Superhighways 

December 6, 1941. 
To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Contract F-1, F-2 and F-3 Com- 
bined of the State Street Subway with the W. E. 
O'Neil Construction Company, was approved by 
the City Council on September 22, 1941 (C. J., p. 
5613). This contract provides for the station finish 
of the State Street route. The unit and lump sum 
prices included in the Contractor's proposal were 
agrees to be considered as the maximum prices to 
be paid by the City; and it was further agreed that 
the savings between each of such maximum prices, 
and the final cost to the Contractor plus a percent- 
age, would be shared equally by the City and Con- 
tractor. 

I now find we can effect a further saving by 
modifying the specifications for Items A-11 
(Straight Structural Glass for Station Walls), 
A-12 (Curved Structural Glass for Station Walls) 
and A- 13 (Signs on Structural Glass), thereby re- 
ducing the respective maximum unit prices from 
$2.30 per sq. ft., $3.34 per sq. ft, and $1.34 each, 
to $2.22 per sq. ft., $3.23 per sq. ft, and $1.20 each, 
respectively. The original specifications provide 
for the structural glass to be erected against pre- 
viously erected concrete block backing, a part of 
which was included under Item A-10. As now 
proposed, the manufacturer will furnish units made 
up of slightly thinner glass attached to concrete 
block backing. This will permit an estimated sav- 
ing of $1,811.00 to the City. The modification of 



December 10, 1941 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

the specifications for these items will permit a fur- 
ther savings of $1,860.00, due to a reduction of 
3.000 cu. ft. of Hollow Tile or Concrete Block 
(Item A-10), where used as a backing for the 
structural glass. 

It is recommended, therefore, that the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways be author- 
ized to modify the specifications for Items A- 11 
(Straight Structural Glass for Station Walls), A- 12 
(Curved Structural Glass for Station Walls) and 
A- 13 (Signs on Structural Glass) and accept the 
Contractor's proposed reduction in maximum 
prices from $2.30 to $2.22 for Item A-11, from $3.34 
to $3.23 for Item A-12 and from $1.34 to $1.20 for 
Item A-13, for a total estimated saving of $1,811.00. 
It is also recommended that the Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways be authorized to re- 
duce the quantity of Hollow Tile or Concrete Block 
(Item A-10) from 25,000 cu. ft. to 22,000 cu. ft., 
thereby effecting a further saving of $1,860.00. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways. 



Authorization to Place Orders and Enter into Con- 
tracts for Circuit Breakers, Control Equipment and 
Emergency Alarm System for State St. Sub- 
way (Orders S-7, S-8 and S-9 under 
Contract T-4). 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report 
recommending the passage of an order submitted 
therewith to authorize the Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways to place orders and award and 
enter into contracts, without advertising for bids, for 
the furnishing and delivering of certain circuit 
breakers, disconnecting switches and panels, super- 
visory control equipment and an emergency alarm 
system for the State street subway (certain orders 
under Contract T-4). 

Alderman Bowler moved to concur in said report 
and to pass said order. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon to the next regular meeting. 

The question being put, the motion prevailed and 
said order was passed by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen Grant, Cohen, Douglas, Smith, 
Daley, Olin, Lindell, Rowan, Connelly, Hartnett, 
Hogan, Kovarik, Murphy, O'Hallaren, Duffy, Sonnen- 
schein, Kacena, Fischman, Bowler, Sobota, Sain, Kells, 
Gillespie, Upton, Keane, Rostenkowski, Zwiefka, 
Porten, Orlikoski, Walsh, Callahan, Cullerton, Brody, 
Cowhey, Crowe, Bauler, Grealis, Meyer, Hilburn, 
Quirk, Keenan and Quinn — 42. 

Nays — ^None. 

Alderman Lindell thereupon moved to reconsider 
the foregoing vote. 

The motion was lost. 

The following is said order as passed: 

Having received and considered the letter of 
December 8, 1941, from the Commissioner of Sub- 
ways and Superhighways reporting that pursuant 
to the policy which he has found necessary under 
existing circumstances, in order to obtain delivery 
of certain transportation equipment on the State 
Street Subway (Route No. 1), which the City 



Council, by order dated May 29, 1941 (J. C. P. pp. 
4949-51) authorized and directed him to acquire, 
construct and install, and under which the City has 
already placed orders for rail and track material (J. 
C. P. pp. 5690-94) and for cable and wire materials 
(J. C. P. pp. 5798-5800), he has been negotiating 
with manufacturers for the purchase of circuit 
breakers, control equipment and the emergency 
alarm system; that preliminary conferences were 
had with the manufacturers to determine whether 
they were in a position to submit unconditional 
proposals based on his specifications, if the work 
were to be formally advertised and bids taken 
in the customary way; that as in the case of the 
equipment mentioned above, it was found that the 
manufacturers of circuit breakers, disconnecting 
switches and panels, supervisory control equipment 
and emergency alarm systems would probably be 
unable to submit formal and unconditional pro- 
posals due to prevailing business conditions and 
priorities established in connection with the Defense 
Program; that it was his conclusion based on these 
preliminary discussions, that advertising for bids 
would result in a serious loss of time after which 
the City would still be forced to adopt the purchas- 
ing method used to acquire track materials, cable 
and wire, and might be faced with high prices; that 
therefore an invitation was issued on November 12, 
1941 to manufacturers of circuit breakers, discon- 
necting switches and panels, supervisory control 
equipment and emergency alarm systems to submit 
proposals for furnishing this equipment for the 
State Street Subway, Contract T-4, to the General 
Electric Company, The Gamewell Company, the 
Cover Dual Signal Systems, Inc., The Autocall 
Company, the Westinghouse Electric Company, the 
I. T. E. Circuit Breaker Co., the Wood Electrical 
Construction Co., the Signal Eng'r. & Mfg. Com- 
pany, the P. Nacy Company and the Automatic 
Electric Co., that quotations were received from all 
the above companies except the Signal Eng'r. & 
Mfg. Company, the P. Nacey Company, and the 
Automatic Electric Company; that all quotations 
received were tabulated and attached to his said 
communication; that the transportation equipment 
remaining to be acquired for Route No. 1 of the 
Initial System of Subways consists of station con- 
trol equipment and station lighting facilities; that 
based on the quotations submitted, he recommends 
that orders be placed as follows: 

Contract T-4— Order No. S-7 to the 
I-T-E Circuit Breaker Company, Nineteenth 
and Hamilton streets, Philadelphia, Pa., for fur- 
nishing and delivering, f.o.b. Chicago, as listed 
and specified, circuit breakers, disconnecting 
switches and panels: 

Lump Sum $59,425.00; 

that the quotation states that it is void unless 
accepted within fifteen (15) days, or before De- 
cember 12, 1941, that prices are subject to change 
without notice until accepted, and that shipment 
of all materials covered by the above quotation 
can be made in 180 days after official notification 
to proceed with production, on the basis of an 
A-l-C Priority Certificate; 

Contract T-4 — Order No. S-8, Items 1, 2 and 3 
to the 

Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing 
Company, East Pittsburgh, Pa., with Chicago 
office at 20 N. Wacker drive, Chicago, Illinois, 
for furnishing and delivering f.o.b. Chicago, as 
specified, supervisory control equipment, addi- 
tional supervisory control operating-indicating 
functions and additional supervisory control in- 
dicating functions as follows:

Item 1. Supervisory Control Equip- 
ment, lump sum $94,350.00 

Item 2. Additional Supervisory Con-

Item 3. Additional Supervisory Con-

Total Order $96,130.00, 

that Items 2 and 3 may be reduced in number of 
units purchased or may be entirely eliminated 
at the option of the City of Chicago, 

that the above prices are subject to change with- 
out notice; that this quotation expires fifteen 
(15) days from December 1, 1941 and by notice 
is subject to termination within this fifteen day 
period, that the bidder states that a priority 
rating of A-l-A will be required by said West- 
inghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company 
to make shipment in 210 days, that shipments 
based on a lower rating will be correspondingly 
slower; 

Contract T-4 — Order No. S-8, Item 4 
That on this item two bids were received, one 
from the General Electric Company which did 
not offer to furnish the equipment specified, the 
other from The Autocall Company of Shelby, 
Ohio, which they say was predicated upon re- 
ceiving the order for both Order Nos. S-8, Item 
4 and S-9, all or none, that inasmuch as the bid 
submitted by The Gamewell Co. of Newton 
Upper Falls, Mass., was low on Order No. S-9, 
he did not see how he could award Orders No. 
S-8, Item 4 and S-9 combined to The Autocall 
Co., which is not low bidder on both, that an 
attempt is being made to get The Autocall Co. to 
accept Order No. S-8, Item 4 alone and also to 
see if any other way can be found to solve this 
difficulty, that in the meantime, he makes no 
recommendation on this equipment; 

Contract T-4, Order No. S-9 to 

The Gamewell Company, Newton Upper Falls, 
Mass., for furnishing and delivering f.o.b. Chi- 
cago as specified, an emergency alarm system un- 
der our alternate specification providing for the 
series type which will operate with only one No. 
14 A.W.G. copper wire in the line wire loop; also 
instead of the unlimited succession feature for 
pull box operation, it may be limited to the 
simultaneous operation of not more than four 
boxes at the price quoted as follows: 

Emergency Alarm System — 

Lump Sum $21,730.50, 

that this bidder submitted a price of $21,861.00 
for furnishing this equipment under our alter- 
nate specifications and $21,730.50 under our reg- 
ular specifications, that this company is the low 
bidder in either case, and inasmuch as our engi- 
neers and the engineers of the Rapid Transit 
Company prefer the alternate specifications, 
which will reduce the cost of installation and will 
operate equally well, the Gamewell Company 
(by letter attached to this said communication) 
have offered to furnish the alternate equipment 
at the lower price of $21,730.50, 

that the Gamewell Company stated in their 
quotation that "it appears at this time that a 
Preference Rating Certificate of B-1 would en- 
able us to secure the necessary raw materials for 
the fabrication of this equipment within approxi- 
mately 150 days as called for in your Invitation, 



However, as practically everything we need in 
the manufacture of this apparatus is under Gov- 
ernment mandatory control, we would ask your 
co-operation in case we are favored with your 
order to secure for us a Preference Rating Cer- 
tificate of a sufficiently high priority to assist us 
in obtaining new materials" ; 

that a summary of his recommendation is as 
follows: 

Contract T-4 
Order No. S-7 

I-T-E Circuit Breaker Co $ 59,425.00 

Order No. S-8, Items 1, 2, 3 

Westinghouse Electric & Manufac- 
turing Co 96,130.00 

Order No. S-8, Item 4 

No recommendation 
Order No. S-9 

The Gamewell Co 21,730.50 



Total $177,285.50, 

that the proposals recommended for acceptance 
predicate reasonably prompt shipment upon the 
City's ability to obtain a high Priority Preference 
Rating (OPM) ; that all orders are recommended 
to be placed with the company submitting the 
lowest quotation conforming to our specifications; 
that in all cases the recommended manufacturer 
is considered responsible; that each has had many 
years experience in manufacturing equipment sim- 
ilar to that specified under the respective items, 
and in his opinion, is qualified to supply this equip- 
ment, barring unforeseen difficulties in obtaining 
raw materials or in releasing shop equipment be- 
cause of National Defense Requirements; that he 
believes the prices are reasonable under the ex- 
isting difficult circumstances; that these recom- 
mended awards and prices thereunder have been 
considered by him jointly with representatives of 
both the operating company (a photostat of a letter 
from the Chief Engineer for the Trustees of the 
Chicago Rapid Transit Company recommending 
these awards being attached to his said communica- 
tion) and the Prpject Engineer (P. W. A.) who con- 
cur in his opinion that under the existing circum- 
stances and market conditions the orders should 
be placed immediately at the prices recommended; 
and requesting that he be authorized on behalf of 
the City of Chicago to place orders with those com- 
panies recommended therein at the prices stated 
and that the Comptroller and the City Treasurer be 
authorized and directed to pass for payment 
vouchers for same in accordance with the provi- 
sions stated herein when properly approved by him; 
and that in event that shipments of any item cov- 
ered by these orders are received prior to the time 
that the installation contractor is available to ac- 
cept this material, he be authorized to incur the 
necessary expense of hauling and storing of such 
material in suitable warehouses; that payment for 
the expenditures under these orders should be 
made out of the City Traction Fund as authorized 
by the ordinance passed by the City Council on 
May 29, 1941 (J. C. P. 4949-51); that the expendi- 
tures hereinabove recommended fall within those 
provisions of the Unification Ordinance passed by

Request for a Reduction in Traffic Accidents in 
December by Strict Observance of Traffic 
Rules and Regulations. 

The City Clerk presented the following proclama- 
tion of Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, which was 
ordered published and placed on file: 

Proclamation 
"Give Courtesy for Christmas" 

Whereas, there is now under way a nationwide 
Emergency Safety Campaign, requested by Presi- 
dent Roosevelt to halt accidents that are hinder- 
ing national defense; and 

Whereas, the month of December is usually the 
deadliest traffic month of the year because of 
accompanying bad weather, more darkness, and 
the rush and conviviality of Holiday shoppers on 
crowded streets; and 

Whereas, this year there is added to these nor- 
mal hazards the added activity of organizing in 
record time a nation-wide program of civilian de- 
fense, making the need to avoid accidents more 
urgent than ever before since it is the patriotic 
duty of every citizen to protect life and property 



in this crucial hour when our country needs the 
uninterrupted work of all our people; and 

Whereas, there is added to this civic and patri- 
otic duty the humanitarian obligation of every 
one to spare his family and all other families un- 
necessary tears and suffering at a time when 
every ounce of courage and confidence must be 
maintained ; and 

Whereas, there is no better application of the 
spirit of "Good Will Toward Men" than the exer- 
cise of continuous courtesy on the streets and 
highways, whether you are driving a car or 
walking, 

Now, therefore, as Mayor of Chicago, I urge 
that all our people "Give Courtesy for Christmas" 
and take particular heed of traffic rules and sig- 
nals at all times, and in giving good example to 
others they will be serving their country's cause 
as well as saving valued and needed lives. 

Dated this 12th day of December, A. D. 1941. 

(Signed) Edw^ard J. Kelly, 

Mayor.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 22, 1941 



City of Chicago 
Fire Department 

December 22, 1941. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, 
Mayor, City of Chicago, 
City Hall, Chicago, Illinois 

Dear Mr. Mayor — In submitting my depart- 
mental estimates to the Comptroller, I have, for 
the past several years, included a request for an 
appropriation for the purchase of a new fire boat, 
similar to the "Fred A. Busse," for the reason that 
I have considered this addition to the facilities of 
the fire-fighting service very essential. 

At the present time, with the country engaged in 
war against Germany, Italy and Japan, the impor- 
tance and necessity of increased fire protection is 
obvious, especially along the many miles of water- 
front which the city possesses. 

If the money can be made available, I now earn- 
estly request that serious consideration be given to 
the possibility of appropriating a sum of money 
sufficient to purchase two modern diesel-operated 
boats, similar in design to our "Busse," which has 
proved its value, both in economical operation and 
performance. It is considered important that one 
of these new boats replace the antiquated Medill in 
Soutli Chicago, which at present is operating at 
only half capacity, and that the additional boat be 
placed in service in the south branch of the Chicago 
river to replace the "Illinois," which was discon- 
tinued three years or so ago because of its age, 
excessive cost of operation and inefficiency. Many 
industries of vital importance to national defense 
are situated along this branch of the river. 

I believe that both of these boats could be pur- 
chased for $500,000.00 and again request your seri- 
ous consideration in this matter. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) M. J. Corrigan, 

Fire Commissioner,

taxation relating to the various city governments, 
submits herewith its report as of October 31, 1941. 

This committee has reported at various times 
during the past three years on the very important 
question of tax delinquency and has made many 
suggestions and recommendations to local public 
officials. Recommendations of the Committee have 
included the enactment of legislation for the allo- 
cating to all taxing bodies their proportionate share 
of interest and penalties; the establishment of a tax 
enforcement bureau; that the State Tax Commis- 
sion use the same equalization factor as the Asses- 
sor of Cook County; that the board of County Com- 
missioners provide a bond for the Sheriff and 
County Treasurer so that levies could be enforced 
on Personal Property Tax warrants and judgments; 
that publicity programs on tax assessments be in- 
stituted for public information; that the staff of the 
State's Attorney and County Treasurer be aug- 
mented for the purpose of providing more forceful 
efforts for collection of past due taxes, together with 
many other suggestions respecting tax problems in 
general. 

Some of these proposed recommendations have 
been adopted and the net results have been most 
encouraging and satisfactory. Your Committee has 
insisted during the years of 1939, 1940 and now in 
1941 that the serious problem of tax delinquency 
and its solution be considered one of the most im- 
portant local problems for the consideration of all 
public officials and we cannot urge too strongly 
your most careful consideration of the facts submit- 
ted in this report. 

Your Committee wishes to report that during the 
ten month period, January 1 to October 31, 1941, 
total general property taxes collected in Cook 
County amounted to $195,763,641. This exceeds 
the total taxes collected during the entire year of 
1940 by approximately Ten Million Dollars, and 
exceeds the total taxes collected for the entire year 
1939 by a little over Nine Million Dollars. 

The total taxes collected during the first ten 
months of 1941 is equal to 88.57% of the total new 
taxes (1940) put into collection during the year 
1941. This figure is against original extension of 
$221,031,888. 

Status of 1940 taxes as of October 31, 1941, is as 
follows:

previous record as will be noted from comparison 
with previous twelve year record of extensions and

Personal Property Taxes 

During the ten months to October 31, 1941, the 
improvements and refinements in Personal Prop- 
erty tax assessments made by the Assessor, in co- 
operation with Personal Property taxpayers, and 
the joint efforts by the State's Attorney, Sheriff, 
County Treasurer, and this Committee, to collect 
Personal Property taxes, has all contributed in 
making the first ten months of this year a record 
period in the collection of Personal Property taxes, 
and has strikingly demonstrated that a large pro- 
portion of Personal Property taxes can be collected 
by intelligent, cohesive action, as incessantly urged 
by this Committee. Comparison of Personal Prop- 
erty tax collection figures for ten months of 1941 
with twelve months of 1940 is as follows:

two months yet to go. Real Estate collections 
amount to $145,503,553, paid for and on account of

collected during entire year of 1940, as will be 
noted by comparison of figures for ten months of 
1941 with twelve months of 1940, viz:

Tax Delinquency 

Notwithstanding the splendid collection record 
for the ten months to October 31, 1941, this Com- 
mittee finds, and wishes to report, that a comparison 
of total taxes delinquent as of September 15, 1939 
and October 31, 1941, indicates an increase of ap- 
proximately Four Million Dollars in total taxes 
delinquent as follows:

From these figures it will be noted that while the 
Real Estate tax delinquency is reduced by approxi- 
mately 14 Million Dollars, the Personal Property 
tax delinquency has increased by approximately 
201/2 Million Dollars. 

In connection with the total tax delinquency, this 
Committee wishes to call particular attention to 
analysis of the delinquency as of Septem.ber 15, 
1941, which shows exactly how much is owed by 
each class of property and for what years (Pages 
7, 8, and 9 — of this report). 

The figures quoted in this report are county- 
wide, but since approximately 80% of the taxes 
billed accrue to city governments, the county-wide 
figures serve our purpose.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



6095 



To counteract reports currently in circulation re- 
garding actual cash payments and reductions al- 
lowed in the courts or otherwise obtained, and so 
that the Council members will be fully informed 
regarding this phase of the tax situation, this Com- 
mittee calls particular attention to Page 9 of this 
report which shows year by year detail of tax 
extensions, collections and reductions for the thir- 
teen year period 1928 through 1940. Summarized, 
this analysis as of September 15, 1941, shows the 
aggregate of taxes extended Two Billion 880 Mil- 
lion Dollars; collections (cash) Two Billion 355 
Million Dollars which is equal to 81.78% of taxes 
billed. Against the total taxes billed, allowances 
or reductions have been obtained amounting to 104 
Million 578 Thousand Dollars which is equal to 
3.63% of total taxes extended. Delinquent taxes 
equal 14.59% of total taxes extended. This state- 
ment accurately covers the matter except for re- 
ductions allowed by the courts on Personal Property 
taxes for the years 1928 to 1933 inclusive. In this 
latter connection no figures are available in the 
office of the County Treasurer, and any forecast as 
to reductions allowed or allowable for those years 
is merely an approximation. 

In several reports issued by this Committee from 
time to time during the past two years, particular 
attention has been called to the length of time 
taxes have been delinquent, and in this regard this 
Committee wishes to again emphasize the facts. 

It will be seen from the analysis (Page 9) that as 
of September 15, 1941 more than 37% of the total 
Real Estate tax delinquency is for the years 1928 
through 1933, the years of the reassessment and the 
years of the appointee assessor. It will be also 
noted that approximately 30% of the total Real 
Estate tax delinquency is for the years 1934 through 
1937, and that approximately 32% of the total de- 
linquency is for the years 1938 through 1940. 

The delinquency in Personal Property taxes 
presents an entirely different picture. Here it will 
be noted that 55% of the total Personal Property 
tax delinquency is for the years 1928 through 1933, 
the years of the reassessment and appointee asses- 
sor; that approximately 22% is for the years 1934 
through 1937, and that approximately 23% is for 
the years 1938 through 1940. 

This Committee emphasizes the years and the 
proportion of the total delinquency which is due 
for the various years back to 1928 for the very 
good reason that this Committee has heretofore 
called attention to the fact that approximately 72 
Million Dollars in unpaid Personal Property taxes 
for the year 1927 and prior years appears to be 
entirely forgotten, and rests peacefully in the 
musty warrant books. If the 209 Million Dollars 
still carried on the warrant books as "unpaid" for 
the years 1928 through 1937 is to be politely for- 
gotten, this Committee feels that the members of 
the Council should know about it. 

This Committee has continued its activities of 
the past three years and takes pride in the fact 
that its efforts are bearing fruit as indicated by the 
new record established in collection of Personal 
Property taxes during the 10 months to October 
31, 1941. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Committee on Consolidation, 
Reorganization and Taxation, 

(Signed) Frank Keenan, 

Chairman.

The following is said order as passed: 

Whereas, By the decision of the Appellate Court 
of Illinois in the case of People ex rel. O. E. North- 
rup et al. v. City Council of the City of Chicago, 
et al., filed January 22, 1941, it was adjudged that 
the reduction of the salary of the aldermen effected 
by failure to appropriate in full for their compensa- 
tion during the years 1932, 1933, 1934 and 1935 
was unconstitutional, against public policy and 
void, and the court commanded the City Council 
and its officers to pay the salaries of the plaintiffs 
in that case; and 

Whereas, By an ordinance passed June 26, 
1941 there was appropriated the sum of $53,- 
600.09 for the payment of salaries of aldermen for 
the years 1932 to 1935, inclusive, in accordance 
with the judgment hereinbefore referred to, and 
by an order passed September 10, 1941 the Comp- 
troller was authorized and directed to pay certain 
sums of money on account of salary deductions 
during the years 1932 to 1937, inclusive, to ex- 
aldermen and the estates of deceased persons who, 
at the time of their death, were aldermen, and had 
refrained from suing the City for the deficiency in 
their respective salaries; and 

Whereas, Pursuant to the mandate of the court 
and the order of the City Council hereinbefore 
referred to the City Comptroller and the City 
Treasurer have paid to the persons named in said 
mandate and said order of the City Council the 
sums of money ordered and authorized to be paid; 
and 

Whereas, The persons who have held the office 
of alderman during the years 1932 to 1937, inclu- 
sive, and who have refrained from suing the City 
for the deficiency in their respective salaries are 
similarly situated and equally entitled to payment 
in full of the salary fixed by law as those to whom 
payments have been made by orders of court and 
of the City Council; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the Comptroller and Treasurer be 
and they hereby are authorized and directed to pay 
the sum of $50,000 from Account 36-M-2 on account 
of salary deductions from aldermen during the 
years 1932 to 1937, inclusive. Each person whose 
claim does not exceed the sum of $200 shall be paid 
in full. The remainder of said fund shall be distrib- 
uted to the persons who have served as aldermen 
during the years 1932 to 1937, inclusive, on account, 
pro rata relative to the respective amounts due to 
each such person; it is further 

Ordered, That the Comptroller be and he hereby 
is authorized and directed to set up all the unpaid 
balance due to all persons who served as alder- 
men during the years 1932 to 1937, inclusive, as 
a liability of the City as of January 1, 1942, and 
that said liability be paid in due course as money 
becomes available.

JOURNAL— CITY COXJNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 22, 1941 



The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order; 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

December 6, 1941. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Contract S-IA of the State Street 
Subway, extending from 13th to 11th streets on 
State street, was awarded to Paschen Contractors, 
Inc. on June 5, 1940 (C. J., p. 2645). 

This contract is now more than 90% completed, 
and there remains to be earned under the contract 
approximately $100,000. The work completed to 
date has been done in a satisfactory manner. The 
present reserve on this contract amounts to ap- 
proximately $155,000. 

The Contractor has now requested the release of 
$45,000 of this reserve, which would leave a bal- 
ance of $110,000 to guarantee the completion of the 
work and a proper settlement of any claims from 
other bureaus of the City. We have been verbally 
advised that the following amounts are the maxi- 
mum estimated claims which may be charged to the 
Contractor: 

Bureau of Electricity $ 250.00 

Bureau of Water Pipe Extension 3,000.00 

City Architect 1,000.00 

The new sidewalks and streets remaining to be 
completed on this contract are a part of the con- 
tract work, and will be paid for by the City at 
conliact unit prices. 

It is recommended, therefore, that authority be 
granted to pay Paschen Contractors, Inc. the sum 
of $45,000 from the reserve held under Contract 
S-IA of the State Street Subway, leaving a bal- 
ance of approximately $110,000, which is more 
than ample to guarantee completion of the work, 
and satisfaction of all claims of the City against 
the Contractor. This requested approval is sub- 
ject to the Contractor furnishing releases satis- 
factory to the City. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways.

Subway Contract S-9A (Paschen 
Contractors, Inc.). 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report 
recommending the passage of an order submitted 
therewith to authorize the Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways to pay for extra work in con- 
nection with Subway Contract S-9A. 

Alderman Bowler moved to concur in said report 
and to pass said order. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon to the next regular meeting. 

The question being put, the motion prevailed and 
said order was passed by yeas and nays as follows: 



Yeas — Aldermen Dickerson, Cohen, Douglas, Smith, 
Daley, Lindell, Rowan, Connelly, Hartnett, Hogan,

Nays — None. 

The following is said order as passed: 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways be and he is hereby author- 
ized, in accordance with his recommendation of 
December 8, 1941, attached hereto and made a 
part hereof, to pay to Paschen Contractors, Inc., 
contractors for Contract S-9A of the State Street 
Subway the lump sum of $1,499.05 as determined 
on a cost-plus-15% basis, on account of burning 
and removing steel ribs and liner plates from the 
sidewalls of the existing station sections of the 
subway tube in order to maintain the minimum 
width of passageways constructed under the 
terms of said Contract S-9A. 



The following is the communication attached to 
the foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

December 8, 1941. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Contract S-9A of the State Street 
Subway with Paschen Contractors, Inc., includes 
the construction of stations at Chicago avenue 
and Grand avenue. These structures provide en- 
trances to the Subway through openings in the side 
walls of the Station section built under Contract 
S-5 of the State Street Subway. 

Upon excavating for the stations the sidewalls 
of the Station sections built under Contract S-5 
were found to be thicker than specified. The 
outside of these walls are encased in steel ribs 
and liner plates. As the Station passageways con- 
structed under this contract are adjacent to the 
. tubes it was necessary to remove this excess thick- 
ness in order to maintain the proper width for the 
passagev/ays. The specifications provide for the 
removal of the excess concrete under Item 14. 
(Removal of Concrete.) However, as there is no 
provision for payment of removal of steel ribs and 
liner plates except at direct connections the Con- 
tractor was ordered to do this work on a cost-plus 
15% basis as provided in the specifications. The 
extent of this work could not be determined until 
the excavation was completed. The final cost (plus 
15%) of this work has been determined to be 
$1,499.05. This amount has been approved by the 
P. W. A. 

It is recommended therefore that authority be 
granted to pay Paschen Contractors, Inc., con- 
tractor for Contract S-9A of the State Street Sub- 
way the lump sum of $1,499.05 as determined on a 
cost-plus 15% basis. This amount covers the cost 
of burning and removing steel ribs and liner plates 
from the sidewalls of the existing station section

Authorization for Acceptance of Decreased Amount 
of Insurance Coverage for Unfinished Work on 
Subway Contract S-lOA (A. J. Forschner 
Construction Co.). 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report 
recommending the passage of an order submitted 
therewith to authorize the Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways to accept a contingent property 
damage insurance policy for $25,000 under Subway 
Contract S-IOA. 

Alderman Bowler moved to concur in said report 
and to pass said order. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon to the next regular meeting. 

The question being put, the motion prevailed and 
said order was passed by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — ^Aldermen Dickerson, Cohen, Douglas, Smith,

hey, Crowe, Bauler, Grealis, Young, Hilburn, Quirk, 
Keenan and Qviinn — 41. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said order as passed: 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Subways and 
Superhighways be and he is hereby authorized, in 
accordance with his recommendation attached 
hereto and made a part of this order, to accept a 
contingent property damage insurance policy in the 
amount of $25,000.00 in connection with contract 
S-lOA, State Street Subway, A. J. Forschner Con- 
struction Company, contractor, in lieu of a contin- 
gent property damage insurance policy in the 
amount of $150,000.00 as required by the specifi- 
cations, on account of the practical completion of 
said contract. 

The following is the communication attached to 
the foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

December 19, 1941. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Contract S-lOA of the State Street 
Subway with the A. J. Forschner Construction 
Company, Contractor, was approved by the City 
Council on April 10, 1940 (C. J., p. 2332). The 
contract specifications require the Contractor to 
furnish certain insurance coverage, including Di- 
rect and Contingent Property Damage policies in 
an amount not less than $150,000. These policies 
were both issued by Lloyd's of London and have 
now expired. All work is completed on this con- 



tract, except a small amount of new sidewalk. As 
this work, which will cost about $450.00, will be 
done by a subcontractor, it is necessary that the 
Contractor renew his Contingent Property Damage 
insurance. 

However, the Contractor has advised me that 
Lloyd's of London will not renew this policy, due 
to the small amount of work remaining, and fur- 
ther, that the American companies will not furnish 
this coverage for the remaining work in an amount 
to exceed $25,000. I feel that inasmuch as the re- 
maining work consists only of placing a small 
amount of new sidewalk on which the possible 
damage to property is very small, the amount of 
$25,000 is ample protection. 

It is recommended, therefore, that the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways be author- 
ized to accept a Contingent Property Damage pol- 
icy in the amount of $25,000 in lieu of $150,000 re- 
quired by the specifications. . 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways. 



Approval of Settlements with Property-Owners in 
Connection with Acquisition of Right of Way for 
Incline Connection between Elevated Railroad 
Structure and the Subway, West of 
N. Bissell St. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report 
recommending the passage of an order submitted 
therewith to approve settlements with certain prop- 
erty-owners in connection with acquisition of right 
of way for subway construction purposes, along the 
alley west of N. Bissell street. 

Alderman Bowler moved to concur in said report 
and to pass said order. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon to the next regular meeting. 

The question being put, the motion prevailed and 
said order was passed by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen Dickerson, Cohen, Smith, Daley, 
Lindell, Rowan, Connelly, Hartnett, Hogan, Kovarik, 
Murphy, O'Hallaren, Duffy, Sonnenschein, Kacena,

Nays — Boyle. 

Alderman Lindell thereupon moved to reconsider 
the foregoing vote. 

The motion was lost.

be published and the recommendations of the Com-

The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

December 17, 1941. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— Please be advised that in the con- 
demnation proceedings entitled City of Chicago v. 
Manz, et al., No. 41 C 6851, Circuit Court, author- 
ized by the City Council, ^ agreements have been 
made, subject to your approval, with the owners 
of certain parcels involved in said proceedings and 
as shown in the plat attached to the condemna- 
tion ordinance passed on July 24, 1941 a copy of 
which plat is hereto attached. 

In each of these cases damage is claimed to the 
remainder of the property not taken for the fol- 
lowing reasons: 

1. The additional two tracks for the subway 
will increase the noise and bring the elevated 
structure closer to the buildings on the remainder 
of the property. 

2. The lots are only 75 feet deep and the tak- 
ing of the strip in each case will reduce the utility 
of a lot which is now shorter by 50 feet than the 
average city lot. 

3. There will no longer be space to maintain 
sheds, garages and other service buildings in the 
part of the lot remaining between the building and 
the new right-of-way line. 

4. In some cases a certain reconstruction is 
necessary. 

5. The property is deprived of facilities for dry- 
ing clothes, maintaining a garden and having a 
small play space for the children. 

6. The closing of Wisconsin street will damage 
the property. 



7. The alley by reason of the placing of sup- 
ports for the new structure will be too narrow for 
adequate use. 

8. There is additional hazard to the occupants' 
property by reason of the proximity of the sub- 
way construction. 

The proposed parcels and agreements concerning 
the same are as follows: 

Parcel No. 8 and 8-A is owned by Marie Schroe- 
der. This property is located at 1818 N. Bissell

The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

December 19, 1941. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Please be advised that in the con- 
demnation proceedings entitled City of Chicago v. 
The Fair, et al., Circuit Court. No. 41 C 6541, au- 
thorized by the City Council, agreements have been 
made, subject to your approval, with the owners of 
certain parcels involved in said suit, for the ac- 
quiring of said parcels. The proposed agreements 
are as follows: 

( 1 ) Parcel 42 is owned by the City of Chicago in 
Trust for the Use of Schools. This property is 
known as the Haven School property and is located 
at 1472 S. Wabash avenue. It is improved with a 
five story brick school building with a one story 
brick boiler room in the rear abutting the alley. 
The property has a frontage on S. Wabash avenue 
of 150 feet with a uniform depth of 170.66 feet to 
a 20 foot alley and contains approximately 25,596 
square feet. 

The area taken consists of a strip of land in the 
rear of this property having a depth of 13 feet on 
the north line and 9 feet on the south line and con- 
tains approximately 1650 square feet. By stipula- 
tion it will be provided that except for the part 
necessary for the columns and footings the descrip- 
tion of the part taken shall be modified to provide 
for the taking of the property described, located 
above a plane on the same level as the existing ele- 
vated road structure. 

A portion of the land affected owned by the 
Board of Education is vacant but in the rear of the 
school building and projecting a short distance 
north thereof is a structure used for the engine 
room and mechanical equipment in connection with 
the operation of the school. It will be necessary 
to locate two columns with footings in this struc- 
ture. A plan has been worked out in conjunction 
with the engineers for the City and the P.W.A. and 
the Architect for the Board of Education by which 
this can be done without interference to the oper- 
ation or utility of the building or equipment. 

The school building will be located a short dis- 
tance nearer the new structure as a result of the

additional track constructed on the easement ac- 
quired. 

In connection with the proposed subway exten- 
sion and primarily because of the closing of 14th 
street, some distance to the north the City is open- 
ing and constructing at its own expense a 60 foot 
street between S. Wabash avenue and S. State 
street which will be located 9 feet north of the north 
line of the Haven School property. The City is ac- 
quiring this 9 feet in the course of its acquisition 
of land for constructing the street. 

It is proposed that the 9 feet in question having 
a depth of 170.66 feet subject only to the new right 
of way of the subway on the rear 13 feet thereof, 
be conveyed to the City of Chicago in trust for the 
use of schools in full compensation for the easement 
for air rights and land required for footings hereto- 
fore described and damages. All cost of construc- 
tion and rehabilitation due to the location of the 
columns in the wall of the boiler room will be paid 
by the City of Chicago out of the subway account. 

(2) Parcel No. 49 is owned by the J & R Motor 
Supply Company, represented by Daniel S. Went- 
worth. This property is located at 1512-1516 S. 
Wabash avenue and comprises two lots having a 
frontage on S. Wabash avenue of 70.45 feet with 
a uniform depth of 170.66 feet to a 20 foot paved 
alley and contains 12,030 square feet. The entire 
property is improved with a seven story and base- 
ment brick and re-inforced concrete commercial 
building about twenty-six years old equipped with 
a modern sprinkler system and has a modern fire 
escape with counter-balance on the rear wall. 

The property involved in the proposed settlement 
embraces 9 x 70.45 feet or 634 square feet and con- 
sists of a permanent and perpetual easement to the 
property above a plane located immediately above 
the ceiling of the second floor the elevation of the 
plane being 39.22 feet above Chicago City Datum; 
also easement for necessary footings for pillai's re- 
quired for the elevated subway incline structure. 

In connection with the acquisition of this ease- 
ment it is necessary permanently to remove the 
rear 9 feet of the five upper floors of the building 
and to make an additional small encroachment in 
the roof of the two story portion remaining; to re- 
construct the entire upper part of the portion of 
the structure which is to remain and to relocate 
and reconnect the sprinkler system, the wiring, the 
ventilating system and other adjuncts of the build- 
ing. 

The entire building is occupied intensively by 
the J & R Motor Company as the distributing head- 
quarters for a business which involves the opera- 
tion of some 55 retail stores scattered throughout 
the middle west, with the exception of the second 
and third floors which were under lease at the time 
of the purchase of the property and which will be 
absorbed into the uses of the business of the own- 
ers as soon as the leases expire or can be acquired. 

By the condemnation suit, it was sought to ac- 
quire the rear 9 feet of the property and all of the 
7 floors and basement located on the 9 x 70.45 foot 
strip for the construction of the subway incline. 
The owners of the property and the representatives 
of the City and the P.W.A. conferred at great length 
in an effort to arrive at an agreement as to the value 
of the part taken and damage to the remainder on 
the basis of the original condemnation suit. Being 
unable to agree the case was set down for trial, a 
jury impaneled on Monday, November 17, 1941, and 
evidence was introduced by both sides on the ques- 
tions involved. After a protracted hearing in court 



it developed that the owners of the property gave 
evidence of a total amount due them covering all 
elements of property taken and damage to the re- 
mainder of approximately $120,000.00, and the City 
introduced evidence of a value for the part taken 
and reconstruction of the remainder of approxi- 
mately $31,825.00, exclusive of a claim for dam- 
ages by the tenant on the second floor which it was 
estimated would reach the additional sum of 
$2500.00 and exclusive of damage to remainder. 

By reason of the facts developed in the trial and 
the large amount demanded by the property owner 
it was suggested that a settlement could be reached 
by working out a plan hy which the owners could 
retain the first two floors intact and that the ease- 
ment be taken above the second floor together with 
the other easements above described as such ease- 
ment would satisfy the requirements of the subway 
and thereby greatly diminish the cost of the prop- 
erty to be taken and the damages. 

While the case was on trial I appeared before the 
City Council Finance Committee and explained the 
matter to it in detail, and the committee authorized 
me to offer a settlement along the indicated lines 
at $42,500.00. 

In reviewing the new plan the City engineers and 
the engineers and architect for the property owner 
learned that the fire escape on the rear wall of the 
existing building could not be replaced on the wall 
of the building when reconstructed as the amount 
of clearance between the proposed new elevated 
tracks and the reconstructed building was insuffi- 
cient under the rules of the Illinois Commerce 
Commission which require a clearance of 9 feet 
between the center line of the nearest track and 
any abutting structure. This will necessitate the 
construction of the fire escape inside the building 
at an additional cost as approved by the engineers 
of $2,500.00. 

As the case was on trial, the jury in the box and 
the time for action extremely limited, I consulted 
with the members of the Finance Committee avail- 
able on such short notice and with their consent 
and approval the attorneys with my authority com- 
promised this additional amount for $1,500.00, dis- 
posing of the matter for a total sum of $44,000.00 
which settlement I reported to the next succeeding 
meeting of the Finance Committee who verbally 
approved the settlement. Whereupon the matter 
was submitted by agreement to the court and jury 
and a verdict entered in accordance therewith. The 
verdict was finally entered as follows: 

For property taken including the air 
rights and that portion of the struc- 
ture demolished $ 6,500.00 

For damage to remainder and wreck- 
ing and reconstruction of the build- 
ing 37,500.00

"2. It is further stipulated that said verdict

Parcels 53 and 53A, the property adjoining said 
Parcel 53 on the east has been damaged, and that 
said damage amounts to the sum of Thirty-two 
Thousand Two Hundred Twenty-five Dollars ($32,- 
225.00). 

"It is further stipulated and agreed that the sum 
allovi^ed by the verdict of the jury and in the judg- 
ment order shall include all costs of demolishing 
down to the surface of the existing alley, clearing 
and reconstructing. Said demolishing to be com- 
pleted within 45 days of the receipt of the money

fied, petitioner may proceed to do the work and 
charge the same to the owner of tlie part not taken. 

"3. It is further stipulated that the owner re- 
serves the right to construct and maintain in the 
part taken, below the surface thereof, two caissons 
for the support of the west wall of the building to

to extend into the part taken not more than two 
feet (2') at the top surface thereof and not more 
than three feet (3') at the base thereof. 

"4. It is further stipulated by the City of Clii- 
cago that the surface of said Parcel 53 shall be used 
in conjunction with the existing alley adjoining 
said Parcel 53 on the west; that the owner reserves

part taken, except that part of Parcel 53 used for 
the supporting columns of the proposed elevated 
structure over said alley, the center of said sup- 
porting columns to be located not more than 15

ance required for the maintenance and operation of 
the existing side track leading from the St. Charles 
Air Line Railroad right of way to the existing 
building now constructed on that part of Lot 4 not

"6. It is further stipulated that the owner of 
said Parcel 53 at the time of payment of the award 
shall convey to the City of Chicago said Parcel 53 
by quit-claim deed, reserving the rights herein 
provided for." 

These tentative agreements now presented to you 
for approval have been arranged as a result of 
numerous conferences between the representatives 
of the owners and the attorneys, real estate and 
building appraisers, and structural engineers em- 
ployed by the City and the P.W.A., and have been 
approved by the Chief Subway Engineer and the 
Project Engineer (P.W.A.).

the suits of the Surface and Elevated Lines for an 
increase in fares by producing evidence to show 
that these companies can earn a fair return if the 



excess costs of these companies for such items as 
power, excess depreciation, unprofitable leased 
lines of the Elevated, legal expenses, etc., be 
reduced." 

The motion to amend was lost. 

Alderman Douglas thereupon presented the follow- 
ing amendment to the committee statement, which 
was, on motion of Alderman Bowler, referred to the 
Committee on Local Transportation: 

Amend Section (d) of the report of the Com- 
mittee on Local Transportation appearing on page 
12 by inserting the following sentence before the 
section as it now reads: "The City should immedi- 
ately proceed to collect current fees from the Chi- 
cago Motor Coach Company for the use of the City 
streets which that company has been using for 
years without a franchise and without payment; 
and that it should do so on a day-to-day basis with- 
out creating for the company any future rights." 

The question thereupon being put on the motion to 
concur in the committee report, the motion prevailed 
by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Aldermen Dickerson, Cohen. Smith, Daley, 
Lindell, Rowan, Connelly, Hartnett, Hogan, McDer-

The following is the committee statement submitted 
with the committee report: 

Statement of Policy 
(by Committee on Local Transportation) 

Chicago, December 22, 1941. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 

At the meeting of the City Council on December 
1, 1941, you referred to this committee a resolution 
relating to (1) Judge Igoe's findings of November 
27, 1941 relative to reorganization value for the 
unified traction properties; (2) the local trans- 
portation rate cases now on hearing before the 
Illinois Commerce Commission; and (3) the use 
of city streets by the Chicago Motor Coach Com- 
pany. 

The Committee on Local Transportation held two 
meetings, on Friday, December 12, 1941 and on 
Tuesday, December 16, 1941 to which all members 
of the City Council were invited. Every alderman 
present was given the privilege to make any state- 
ment on this matter. Alderman Douglas was 
present at both meetings and was afforded full 
opportunity to state his views. 

At these meetings the Committee also called upon 
its staff and legal counsel and on the Commissioner 
of Subways and Superhighways for their inter- 
pretation of various aspects of the matters involved 
and for such recommendations as they might wish 
to make. 

Subsequent to these two meetings, this com- 
mittee met today and considered the resolution and 
information and recommendations presented to it 
at the two previous meetings and desires to submit 
this report and recommendation.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 22, 1941 



The Chicago Surface Lines and the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company have both completed the 
presentation of testimony in their cases now pend- 
ing before the Illinois Commerce Commission ask- 
ing for increases in fares. It is desirable that the 
City now adopt a definite policy for the instruc- 
tion of its counsel in presenting to the Commission 
its views in these cases. Up to the present time the 
City has refrained from presenting any evidence 
and has not cross-examined any witnesses. It has, 
however, carefully preserved all its rights to do 
either. The formulation of such a policy was thor- 
oughly discussed at the committee meetings and 
the recommendations of this Committee in regard 
thereto are also incorporated in this report. 

(1) Reorganization Value 

It is suggested in the resolution that the legal 
representatives of the City be instructed. 

"to ask Judge Igoe to reopen the case and to 
grant permission to submit evidence which was 
available but not used and also to seek clarifica- 
tion as to whether the $40,000,000 of cash in the 
possession of the companies is included in the 
valuation or whether it is in addition to this 
sum." 

In fixing and determining the reorganization 
value of the unified properties of the Chicago Sur- 
face Lines and Chicago Rapid Transit Company 
in the aggi'egate sum of $179,348,467.57 the Court 
stated that, in view of recent Supreme Court deci- 
sions, it is essential that the valuation should be 
consistent with the estimated prospective earnings 
of the new company. In the valuation findings en- 
tered by Judge Igoe on November 27, 1941, the 
following statement is made: 

. "The estimate of $12,000,000 a year as prospec- 
tive earnings of the new company appears to 
the court to be sustained by the record." 

It should be noted that the word "prospective" 
is used. This refers to earnings of the new com- 
pany after the improvements specified in the or- 
dinance have been made. It is estimated by our 
engineers that these improvements will cost the 
new company $102,000,000. They will require the 
abandonment of much existing equipment which 
has no value as useful transportation equipment 
in favor of new and modern equipment. To fi- 
nance this $102,000,000 program the new com- 
pany will be required to incur an indebtedness (in 
addition to the $179,348,467 of initial securities) 
estimated at $43,000,000. 

Hence when the existing properties of Surface 
and Rapid Transit Lines have been acquired and 
the additional cash necessary to complete the im- 
provement program has been borrowed, the new 
company will have outstanding a total security 
issue of $222,348,467 against not only the surviving 
present properties but also against $102,000,000 of 
new properties. 

In other words, the useful present properties are 
represented by permanent securities amounting to 
$120,348,467 in value. 

In comparison, a few other opinions as to valua- 
tion which have previously been before this Com- 
mittee should be considered. Alderman Douglas, 
on July 14, 1939 before the Committee on Local 
Transportation stated that original cost less de- 
preciation of the combined properties can not ex- 
ceed $100,000,000 and reproduction cost less de- 
preciation not in excess of 125 to 130 millions. He 
further stated that "these estimates do not include 
cash reserves of approximately $30,000,000." 



George E. Goldthwaite, the City's expert valua- 
tor, in a report dated July 13, 1939 on valuation for 
city purchase price, found that (including cash 
but not including expenditures for paving, tunnels, 
etc.) the valuation would be $100,000,000 for the 
Surface Lines and a maximum of $32,000,000 for 
the Rapid Transit properties. Goldthwaite stated 
that he had not included materials and supplies in 
his figure but that they should be considered sepa- 
rately. If we take Goldthwaite's figures and add 
other properties and materials and supplies owned 
by the companies which are covered by these secu- 
rities (but not including paving and tunnels) we 
get a figure of $113,390,000 exclusive of cash. 

It should be noted that the figures presented by 
Alderman Douglas and by Mr. Goldthwaite elim- 
inated all non-existent properties such as cable 
cars, horses, etc., and all ordinance allowances of 
10% and 5%. Judge Igoe's finding of $179,348,467 
includes all assets of the present companies such 
as materials and supplies and non-operating prop- 
erties and also cash estimated at $39,637,770 as of 
January 31, 1941. 

It was suggested that we seek clarification as to 
whether this cash is included in the Court's re- 
organization valuation or whether it is in addition 
to this sum. Our legal counsel and engineers who 
have followed closely every phase of these matters 
before the Court, state that the cash is definitely 
included. We have verified this beyond any doubt 
in our minds, but in order that there be no doubt 
in the mind of anyone, we suggest that at the 
proper time legal counsel for the City ask Judge 
Igoe to make a statement covering this particular 
matter. 

Likewise, it should not be overlooked that the 
1930 ordinance would have placed a permanent 
security value upon existing properties of the Sur- 
face and Elevated Lines of $271,707,747; that the 
annual debt requirements of these companies at 
present are $9,746,592; that under the 1930 plan 
they would have varied from $4,966,000 to $8,684,- 
284. These annual debt burdens which the car 
rider must pay should be $3,986,432 if the present 
Shaw plan is consummated and $3,188,826 under 
the suggested R.F.C. plan. 

The reorganization value and the annual debt 
requirements will be substantially lower than have 
ever been previously proposed. Even as late as 
July, 1939 the companies suggested issuing $222,- 
773,320 in securities. We believe that any attempt 
to reopen or appeal the case would secure no ad- 
vantage for the City and v/ould merely tend to 
prolong litigation and delay unification and im- 
provement of service. This valuation is primarily 
for the purpose of issuing securities and does not 
represent the value of used and useful property for 
rate-making purposes. Attorneys for the receivers 
and trustees made that clear in an opening state- 
ment to the court on October 10, 1941 before 
presenting their evidence as to value, and from 
which the following is quoted: 

"It is understood that when such reorganiza- 
tion values are determined by the court they will 
not be utilized, offered or introduced into evi- 
dence in any proceedings whatsoever to deter- 
mine the value of the properties of the companies 
or the Chicago Transit Company for rate making 
purposes or for the purpose of fixing the price 
at which the City of Chicago, or its permittee, 
may purchase the properties under the provisions 
of the aforesaid ordinance." 

As a matter of fact, while not necessarily a mat- 
ter to be determined at this time, it may well de- 



December 22, 1941 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

velop that the City would be best served by 
permitting the permanent valuation which this 
finding will ultimately produce to be used even in 
a future rate case. 

In view of these facts this Committee is of the 
opinion that the reorganization value found by 
Judge Igoe on November 27, 1941 is reasonable and 
that, if no higher value is subsequently approved 
by the Federal Court, the City should not ask per- 
mission to reopen the case nor should it interject 
any new obstacles to a prompt settlement by the 
Court of this matter which is the concern not only 
of the security holders but also of the City in its 
desire and need for early and adequate improve- 
ments in service. 

However, it should be borne in mind that a re- 
organization plan based upon this finding of reor- 
ganization value has not as yet been approved by 
the Federal Court; in fact, it cannot be so approved 
until objections by certain security interests to the 
valuation finding now on file with the Court have 
been heard and disposed of. A hearing on these 
objections has been set for January 9, 1942. After 
the reorganization plan based upon the Court's 
finding establishing an aggregate reorganization 
value has been approved by the Court, such re- 
organization plan and the securities to be issued 
thereunder must be submitted to the Illinois Com- 
merce Commission who may either approve or 
reject the plan, or may approve the plan with mod- 
ifications. The City should reserve its right to 
make any suggestions it deems desirable relative 
to any details of the plan which affect the car- 
riding public or the City when the plan is set down 
for hearing either before the Court or the Commis- 
sion. 

(2) Rates of Fare 

The resolution suggests that the legal representa- 
tives of the City be instructed to seek to prevent an 
increase in fares on the surface and elevated lines. 

This Committee believes that the City of Chi- 
cago's interest lies in obtaining adequate, con- 
venient and safe service at the lowest possible cost. 
It also recognizes that a company with financial 
stability and credit is essential if it is to obtain 
this service. 

All those concerned with Chicago traction, 
whether they be City or Company interests, have 
publicly conceded that the only sound way to 
achieve this objective is by unification, the elimina- 
tion of competition and duplication, and by the 
establishment of sound credit. 

Being universally conceded, it seems almost ob- 
vious that the efforts of all should be directed 
toward hastening permanent unification, rather 
than toward expedients such as separate fare in- 
creases even though they are proclaimed as tem- 
porary only. It is our contention that the present 
service with antiquated and insufficient equipment 
is not worth any more to the car-riding public than 
it is now paying. 

The City recognizes that the law places upon the 
Illinois Commerce Commission, the authority and 
duty to determine just and reasonable fares. It 
recognizes that the present earnings of two of 
these properties are extremely low. Giving effect 
to recent wage increases, and granting of pensions, 
it has been estimated that net earnings for 1941 
of the three Chicago Local Transportation Com- 
panies will be about as follows: 



Chicago Surface Lines (after City 

Compensation) $1,800,000 

Chicago Rapid Transit 700,000- (Loss) 

Chicago Motor Coach Company. . 625,000 



Estimated total net income for 

1941 $1,725,000 

However, it believes no small part of this con- 
dition can be attributed to the quality of the service 
now being rendered. In this connection, we point 
out that Governor Green, Mayor Kelly and Judge 
Igoe, in separate recent public statements, observe 
that rates of fare have a direct relation to the 
service rendered. Therefore your committee be- 
lieves that no order of any kind should be entered 
by the Illinois Commerce Commission in any of 
these rate cases that does not include, within the 
order itself, a requirement for improving the pres- 
ent services. 

We also point out that the Receivers of the Sur- 
face Lines, the Chicago Motor Coach Company, and 
the Trustees of the Rapid Transit Company (on 
many lines), are operating in city streets without 
franchise right from the City of Chicago and that 
the City's policy is to grant no such permanent right 
except to a unified company. However, we rec- 
ognize, and we are sure the Commission recognizes, 
that the interests of the people require that tem- 
porary operation be continued until a permanent 
solution of this problem involving unification of 
service can be worked out. In pursuance of this 
policy, the City has been granting only temporary 
permission for needed extensions of lines, which 
permission is automatically terminable at the ex- 
piration of such receivership. Immediate improve- 
ments of service under the same sort of temporary 
and terminable rights could be ordered now by the 
Commission, as the Committee suggests. 

After considering all the elements involved, this 
Committee has arrived at the conclusion that if 
the City were to request a finding by the Commis- 
sion in these rate cases based on the usual formula 
of determining a physical value of the properties 
and a fair rate of retui'n on such value. The posi- 
tion of the City might be seriously impaired; that 
a defense to the petitions for temporary increases 
in fares based solely upon valuation of properties 
used and useful for transportation purposes might 
react against the City and not afford the relief 
which is sorely needed, namely, new equipment 
and modernized service. 

On the other hand, if the City takes the position 
that present service and early unification should be 
the controlling considerations in arriving at any 
temporary order, the City could then adopt and 
urge the following policy: 

First, tliat before the Commission give any fur- 
ther consideration to these requests for temporay 
and separate fare increases, positive assurance be 
given the Commission and the City that the uni- 
fication program will be expedited and consum- 
mated at the very earliest possible date. To this 
end the City should request that counsel for the 
Receivers and Trustees present positive evidence 
for the record, that the representatives of the 
owners of the properties will recommend accept- 
ance of the ordinance to the security holders as 
soon as the Court and Commerce Commission 
have approved a reorganization plan; also the 
officers of the Motor Coach Company should be 
asked for definite assurance that they will rec- 
ommend the sale of their property to the new 
unified company at a price commensurate with 



6142 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 22, 1941 



its fair value as determined by the Illinois Com- 
merce Commission. 

Second, that the Commission be requested to 
order the Receivers and Trustees of the Surface 
and Rapid Transit Lines, and the owners of the 
Motor Coach Company to embark immediately 
upon a program of improving service, including 
new equipment and more service with existing 
equipment, devoting to this purpose a substantial 
part of available cash and all revenues hereafter 
received and not required for operating expenses 
(such as wages, pensions, materials, services and 
taxes). These improved services can be fur- 
nished by the operators under the same tempo- 
rary rights as are now being granted for exten- 
sions pending consummation of the permanent 
unification plan. 

As to whether payment of past-due interest to 
first-mortgage bondholders of the Surface Lines 
should be considered and whether failure to main- 
tain such interest payments will adversely affect 
the credit of the new company is a matter that has 
been ably directed by Judge Igoe who stated on 
November 18, 1941 with reference to the ordinance 
passed by the City on June 19, 1941 

"the next step is to have the bondholders approve 
it. As soon as that happens there is not going 
to be any difficulty here at all about having the 
interest paid. But if that part of this time-table 
is not lived up to, I am afraid the train is going 
to be pretty late within the very near future." 

This Committee believes that the public interest 
in this regard, as well as in effecting any possible 
economies in operation, will continue to be ade- 
quately safeguarded by Judge Igoe, and that the 
City should not alter its policy by interfering in 
this temporary phase of the major matter and 
which is now under the jurisdiction of the Federal 
Court. 

In suggesting the foregoing policy regarding 
fares, the City does not desire to be understood as 
adopting an obstructive or arbitrary position if the 
conditions involved in furnishing the necessary ser- 
vice are substantially changed. It recognizes that 
times are chaotic; that wages and pensions have in- 
creased; that the cost and expense of materials, 
supplies and taxes are rising; and that no man can 
predict the amount of these future expenses. 
Nevertheless, it repeats that it believes the quality 
and quantity of service should be paramount and 
controlling in any consideration by the Illinois 
Commerce Commission of these petitions for added 
charges upon the car-riding public. 

The Committee does not approve and agree to 
any increase in fares. The public record is that the 
Mayor, the City Council and this Committee have 
always uniformly opposed any increase for fares. 
However, the companies are now asking the Illinois 
Commerce Commission for fare increases because 
of changed conditions in rendering public service, 
such as increases in wages and pensions, the in- 
creased cost of materials, etc., and the Committee's 
general policy is that should the Illinois Commerce 
Commission see fit to increase any rates of fare, 
that the Com.mission's order should definitely in- 
clude a firm and forcible obligation to provide sub- 
stantial improvements in service and direct the 
representatives of the companies to make known 
their attitude immediately on the question of uni- 
fied modernized service. 

While these are now separate proceedings, the 
City's general policy should be the same in all three 
cases, which include not only Surface Lines and 



Rapid Transit cases, but also the case involving the 
Chicago Motor Coach Company. 

In support of their professed intention to bring 
about unification as soon as they can and to merge 
the properties of the Motor Coach Company at an 
early time, no stronger evidence could be offered by 
the owners and representatives of all the local 
transportation properties than their agreement now 
to a consolidation of all three causes. In this man- 
ner, the Commission could give immediate con- 
sideration to quality of service and existing condi- 
tions, and to costs of operation, and thus could 
arrive at a properly balanced and coordinated 
schedule of fares on all three services. In this con- 
nection, the City should urge the Commission to 
reach an early determination of the fair value of 
the properties of the Chicago Motor Coach Com- 
pany. This official valuation, if made known, will 
make it possible for the City to force both prospec- 
tive seller (the Bus Company) and the prospective 
purchasers to reach agreement on a purchase price 
which will be reasonable and publicly acceptable. 

(3) Motor Coach Fares and Transfers 

The resolution also suggests that the legal rep- 
resentatives of the City be instructed 

"to bend all efforts both to reduce bus fares and 
to compel the bus company to pay compensation 
for the use of the city streets and then if this is 
not done to prepare orders and take steps to 
remove the busses of the Chicago Motor Coach 
Company from the streets of the city which they 
are using v^^ithout a franchise and without pay- 
ment." 

This Committee believes that a more effective 
policy to handle the matter of fares in the best in- 
terest of the City has been outlined in paragraph 
(2) above. Our legal representatives advise us 
that by accepting compensation for the use of city 
streets, we might be giving the bus company a legal 
right to operate on those streets. This Committee 
believes it should be our firm policy not to grant 
any additional franchises other than temporary 
permits to Court Receivers and Trustees for tem- 
porary improvements and short extensions pending 
settlement of unification. Removing buses of the 
Motor Coach Company from the streets of the City 
would be decidedly detrimental to the objective of 
obtaining better service for the citizens of Chicago. 
The Committee recommends that such action 
should not be taken at this time and that we con- 
centrate our efforts along lines which will hasten 
the day when this company will be part . of the 
unified system. 

( 4 ) Summary 

This Committee, in considering the resolution 
referred to it on December 1, 1941, and in consider- 
ing what the City's policy should be in the rate 
cases now before the Illinois Commerce Commis- 
sion, submits the following: 

(a) The City should not reopen or interfere 
in the reorganization case before Judge Igoe pro- 
vided that no reorganization value higher than 
fixed and determined by the Court on Novem- 
ber 27, 1941 is later advanced by the Court. The 
City should, in order to remove doubt in the 
mind of anyone, ask the Court to reaffirm pre- 
vious orders in the case indicating that all the 
cash and other assets in the possession of the 
companies is included in the reorganization 
valuation. The City should also reserve the 
right to present suggestions or objections to any 
details of the amended reorganization plan 
which appear to affect the interests of the public 



December 22, 1941

after the Court has heard the matter now set 
for hearing on January 9, 1942. 

(b) Before the Illinois Commerce Commis- 
sion gives any further consideration to requests 
for temporary and separate fare increases, it 
should be urged to require that positive assur- 
ance be given the Commission and the City that 
the unification program will be expedited and 
consummated at the very earliest possible date. 

(c) The Receivers and Trustees of the Sur- 
face and Rapid Transit Lines and the owners 
of the Chicago Motor Coach Company should 
be ordered by the Commission to embark im- 
mediately upon a program of improving serv- 
ice, including new equipment and more service 
with existing equipment, devoting a substantial 
part of available cash and revenues hereafter 
received and not required for operating ex- 
penses to this purpose. In this connection 
counsel for the City should offer to furnish the 
Commission with ample evidence of existing 
unsatisfactory service. 

(d) No new franchises other than tempor- 
ary permits for improvements and minor ex- 
tensions should be granted to any of the 
existing companies but all efforts should be 
directed towards securing unification of all forms 
of local transportation. Any such temporary 
permits and all rights thereunder should auto- 
matically terminate when unification is achieved. 

(e) Instruct counsel for the City to request the 
Illinois Commerce Commission to combine and 
consider the three pending rate cases as one con- 
solidated cause and authorize counsel to advise 
the Commission that the City does not approve 
any increases in rates of fare, but that if the 
Commission sees fit to grant such increases in 
fares, its order (within the order itself), should 
definitely provide for and assure to the car-riding 
public who pays the bill, substantial improve- 
ments in both quantity and quality of service. 

(f) Instruct counsel for the City to continue 
to preserve the City's right to make suggestions 
and objections to any phase of either the pro- 
posed reorganization plan or of the rate proceed- 
ings whenever the City's interests appear to be 
adversely threatened. 

For the reasons outlined and as detailed in this 
report, this Committee adopts these principles for 
obtaining at the most reasonable rates, better 
service for the City of Chicago and, it recommends 
that this policy be adopted and aggressively urged 
by the City Council. If followed, such a program 
should bring immediate improvements in service 
and should serve to hasten the day when the com- 
prehensive and unified operation will be per- 
manently achieved. It will hasten the time when 
these transit properties and their securities are 
finally put on a sound financial basis. Operating 
under the terms of the fair and forward looking 
ordinance passed by the City Council on June 19, 
1941, which we are confident the people will ap- 
prove at referendum when submitted, such a 
financially sound company will be able to furnish 
the City modern, adequate and economical ser- 
vice under the comprehensive improvement pro- 
gram including the use of the subways as con- 
templated in that ordinance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Committee on Local • Transportation,

Chairman.

Recommendation for Action to Increase Facilities of 
Local Transportation Companies in the 
Chicago Area. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was referred to a 
special committee to be composed jointly of members 
of the Committee on Local Transportation and mem- 
bers of the Committee on Traffic and Public Safety: 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

January 5, 1942. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The regulations enacted by the 
Civilian Defense Commission curtailing the sale 
and use of automobiles and tires by civilians will 
present a serious problem to our local transporta- 
tion companies. 

It is evident that such curtailment will increase 
the burden upon local transportation companies in 
the Chicago area. In order that there be no crip- 
pling of Chicago's war effort, an endeavor should 
be made to increase the facilities of the various 
local transportation systems in Chicago to handle 
the surplus traffic now carried by the private auto- 
mobile. We must lend every effort to insure max- 
imum production in order to win the war. 

To that end, as Mayor of Chicago and United 
States Coordinator of Civilian Defense for the Chi- 
cago Metropolitan area, I recommend that the com- 
mittee on Local Transportation and the Committee 
on Traffic and Public Safety meet with the officers 
of our local transportation companies, the execu- 
tives of the larger industrial plants and mercantile 
institutions, the members of the Board of Educa- 
tion, the administrators of Catholic and other re- 
ligious schools and institutions of learning to 
consider whatever plans may be necessary to meet 
any critical situation which may arise in the future 
and that the City Council direct the Committee on 
Local Transportation and the Committee on Traffic 
to take whatever steps may be necessary to meet 
any similar emergencies which may arise. 

Respectfully yours, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

Proposed Abrogation of Certain Restrictions and 
Regulations to Permit Use of Certain Types 
of Buildings in Defense Work. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, presented the 
following communication, which was referred to the 
Committee on Buildings and Zoning: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Buildings 

November 25, 1941. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, City of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — Undoubtedly Chicago thanks you on 
the successful outcome of your efforts to have the 
Federal authorities recognize that something must 
be done to save Chicago's small industries from ex- 
tinction because of priority difficulties, and hope 
that the flow of customers will begin without de- 
lay and continue without interruption as long as 
armament work must continue. 



January 5, 1942 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

However, in order that the five-point program 
can be put into motion promptly, manifestly exist- 
ing buildings must be available. Of such there un- 
doubtedly are many in Chicago, but the proposed 
use of some of them may be one for which Section 
59 of the Municipal Code requires the consent of 
the majority of property owners in the block. On 
the other hand, a majority of existing vacant build- 
ings will not be eligible unless some of the sections 
of the Chicago Zoning Ordinace are voided, namely 
for buildings existing at this date of such voiding 
and upon the condition that the use of the building 
will be for the production of national armament, 
preparedness and of lend-lease programs. 

Some of the ordinances that will make many of 
the existing factories ineligible are the following: 

194-8 (a). In a commercial district no build- 
ing shall be used for M (manufacturing) uses. 

194 A- 10. No commercial C 2 use which is 
nearer than 125 feet to a residence or apartment 
district shall be operated between the hours of 
8 P. M. and 6 A. M. No M-2 use shall be estab- 
lished nearer to a residence or apartment district 
than 400 feet, nor nearer to a commercial district 
than 125 feet. 

194 A-8 (b). C 2 use, provided no operations 
are of such a nature as to become offensive or 
noxious to the occupants of adjoining residence 
or apartment uses by reason of the emission of 
odors, fumes or gases, dust, smoke, noise or vibra- 
tion. , 

These are some, but by no means all of the con- 
ditions that must now be met and should be abro- 
gated for the benefit of existing buildings, in which 
the sole work is to be the performance of a bona fide 
armament or lend-lease contract. 

Obviously ordinances governing matters of safety 
of life and limb, such as structural, fire safety and 
means of egress, must remain in force. 

If anything occurs to you that I can do to ex- 
pedite this program, please advise me. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Richard E. Schmidt, 

Commissioner of Buildings.

The City Clerk presented the following proclama- 
tions of Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, which 
were ordered published and placed on file: 

Request for Support of Project to Supply Textbooks 
to Men in Training at Camp Forrest, Tenn. 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 

Whereas, Our country's involvement in the pres- 
ent war has further increased the necessity for the 
maintenance of a high degree of civilian and mili- 
tary morale, and 

Whereas, Approximately 15,000 young men from 
the Chicago area are in training at Camp Forrest, 
and 

Whereas, The Morale Office of Camp Forrest, 
Tennessee, has instituted a comprehensive program 
of education in order more effectively to maintain 
a high degree of morale, and 

Whereas, This program of education is designed 
to enable the soldiers of Camp Forrest to continue 
their education while in training for the defense 
of their country, and 

Whereas, The supply of textbooks available at 
Camp Forrest is entirely inadequate to take care 
of the needs of the five thousand young men now 
enrolled in the camp's educational system, and 

Whereas, It is believed that the citizens of Chi- 
cago will promptly and generously cooperate to re- 
lieve this situation, 

Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of Chicago, 
do proclaim and designate the Civilian Defense 
Headquarters for the Chicago Metropolitan Area, 
located at 23 North Wacker Drive, as a textbook 
depot for Chicago, where citizens of this city can 
bring new or used textbooks and drawing, art and 
artcraft materials where they will be packed for 
shipment to Camp Forrest. 

In order that the citizens of Chicago may actively 
participate in promoting this very worthy educa- 
tional system at Camp Forrest, I hereby call upon 
all civic, patriotic, fraternal, labor and community 
groups, as well as publishers, libraries, public and 
private schools and individuals to deliver to the 
aforementioned depot at 23 North Wacker Drive 
new and used high school or college textbooks and 
thus aid materially in developing this project to a 
maximum of efficiency.

Whereas, Those who gave up their lives in this 
great fire did not die in vain, for the catastrophe 
focussed the attention of the nation upon the need 
for stricter fire prevention regulations, and did 
bring about the adoption of such regulations, there- 
by helping to prevent the loss of many thousands 
of other lives in the years that have followed. 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of the 
City of Chicago, do hereby declare and proclaim 
December 30. 1941, to be Iroquois Memorial Day 
in our city. I urge Chicago citizens, so far as pos- 
sible, to attend the special memorial services to be 
held in honor of the thirty-eighth anniversary of 
the conflagration, in the Council Chambers, at 
three-thirty in the afternoon. This service will 
commemorate the sacrifices made by both the dead 
and the living who were participants in the tragic 
disaster. ~ _
